Prepare for Your Appointment

Prepare for your visit

Each visit to the doctor’s office is important. Below are some tips to help get the most out of your visit.

  • Help us help you – make sure you write down the WellMed location where your appointment is to take place. Also bring your prescription bottles or a list of medications including over the counter medications, vitamins and other health supplements. This list should include the name of the medication and the dosage, as well as the provider who prescribed it to you.
  • In some cases you may be able to complete forms from home before your upcoming appointment.
