Your First Appointment
What to expect at your first appointment
1. Tell us about you and your previous care team
This is the beginning of our relationship, so we want to get to know you really well. At your visit we will ask detailed information about you, your medications, medical history, any current health issues, and information about your self-care. We will also ask you to sign a release of information (ROI) form to give us permission to obtain your medical records and communicate with your previous care team, specialists, and any hospitals.
2. Tell us about your family
Knowing any health issues your grandparents, parents, or siblings may have, could give us a small window into your future; and help to empower you to reach your current wellness goals.
3. Tell us about your health coverage
Our high quality services are provided to all of our patients alike. If you have health insurance, remember to bring your insurance card (commercial insurance, Medicaid or Medicare). If you do not have health insurance, call (240) 839-5810 and a team member will help you explore your coverage options. You may also be eligible for our sliding fee scale discount.
