Keeping a checklist of all you need to remember when going through treatment for cancer or a blood disorder can be a headache. Here are some essential items to bring with you to an appointment:
- Your insurance cards.
- Your prescription cards
- Your I.D.
- A list of all medications you are currently taking, including over-the-counter remedies, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
- A list of any symptoms you may have.
- A list of any questions you may have.
- Consider bringing a family member or close friend who will help you listen to, understand, and remember your doctor’s comments and responses to your questions.
For your first visit, please remember to bring your patient forms.
