Prepare for Your Appointment

Prepare for Your Appointment

Whether this is your first appointment or you are a returning patient, the best way to get the most out your visit is to come prepared and ask questions.

Here’s a checklist to help you prepare for every visit:

  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.
  • Bring your photo ID.
  • Write down all of your healthcare concerns and questions you’d like to address during your visit.
  • Bring all of your medications or a list of medications including the names, dosages and how they are taken.
  • Bring the name and address of your pharmacy of choice.
  • Be prepared to provide your medical history including dates of any prior hospitalizations or surgeries.
  • Insured Patients: Bring your insurance card and co-payment to the appointment.
    (If GBMS is not listed on your insurance card or you are changing providers, you will be asked to complete a PCP change form.)
  • Uninsured Patients: GBMS is not a free facility, we offer a sliding fee for those who qualify. To apply, you must bring proof of income (at least 4 weeks’ worth of income) with you on your first visit. (There will still be a $20 or $30 co-pay required.)
