Preparing for Your Appointment

Planning for your visit will improve your experience and help you make the most of your appointment. Prepare by gathering these items prior to your first appointment:

  • Current list of all medications and supplements you take, including over-the-counter medications
  • List of any allergies you have
  • Health insurance card(s)
  • List of questions and concerns for your care team
  • Notebook or a friend or family member to come with you and take notes
  • Calendar to record your treatment schedule and appointments
  • Log in to NM MyChart and complete any Symptom and Needs Assessment (SANA) questionnaire available to help us personalize your care and improve your quality of life
