You will be asked for basic information. Please be prepared to answer questions regarding:
- Your general health

- Your health insurance card and/or information
- We have prepared a general list of all of the things you should bring with you on your visit to give your doctors the most complete picture of your current health. This saves valuable time for both you and your oncologist.
What to Bring
We have prepared a list of all of the things you should bring with you on your visit in addition to the forms below. This will give your doctors the most complete picture of your current health, saving valuable time.
Please bring with you:
- Your referral, if your insurance indicates that you need one
- Your health insurance identification card or other documentation of your health care insurance
- Your medical chart from the doctor who referred you. This chart should include any tests you have had. Sometimes, this information is forwarded from your doctor’s office directly to the oncologist, but you may want to call a few days in advance of your appointment to make sure this is the case
- X-rays or studies related to the condition for which you are being examined. These are critical for our doctors to determine the next steps in your treatment. These can be the actual films or the films on a CD, so that our doctors may look at real images instead of just a report
- Any medication you are taking. It is most helpful to our staff if you bring the actual bottles; however, you can make a list of all the medications you are taking. Make sure to include the name of the medication, including the generic substitution, the number of milligrams and how many times a day you are directed to take it. Also, include directions, such as “Take with food”.
- A list of important contacts, including emergency names and phone numbers our staff can call.
- A list of questions you may have about your medical care, including diagnosis and treatment
- A notebook and pen so you can write down important information. All our patients receive important health information during their visits, and you may want to keep everything in one place.
