Helpful Suggestions

We know this may be a difficult time. We welcome the support of a family member or close friend during your visit. Having two pairs of eyes and ears can prove helpful later as you review the new information.

Here are some useful tips to help you.

  • Wear something comfortable and skip the perfume and aftershave. You’ll most likely need to change for an examination, so clothing that is easy to get on and off is best.
  • It’s also a great idea to write down your questions before-hand. This way you’ll have time to think about all the topics you want to discuss with your doctor when you’re together. If something should slip your mind – don’t worry. Your doctors and nurses will be available to you 24/7.
