Once we’ve made your appointment, our team works together to prepare for your appointment with us. We want you to know what to do to be prepared as well.
You will receive an appointment reminder in the mail and we will also call you to confirm your appointment a few days prior. We will ask you to arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment to allow time to meet with team members in preparation for your physician visit.
If you need assistance in getting here, we have resources available to assist you.
What to bring with you:
- A picture ID and insurance cards
- A list of all current medications
- Copies of advance directives or healthcare proxy documents if you have them. If you do not have one, we are happy to assist you or you may download a copy and read more about these important documents and Cape Cod Healthcare’s Quality of Life Initiative
