What to Expect for Your Concussion Care

How should I prepare for my appointment?

Before your appointment, make a checklist that includes:
  • All medications you are currently taking and the dosage
  • List of questions or concerns
  • Medical conditions and allergies, as well as surgeries you’ve had
  • Your pharmacy name and number
  • Please contact the office in advance about providing any related medical records or referral information
During your appointment:
  • Be early, especially if you’re a first-time patient, as there are usually forms to fill out
  • Bring any records that would pertain to your visit including your photo ID, insurance card and co-pay
  • Take notes, or ask your companion to do so
  • Ask for clarification if you don’t understand something
  • Ask if other tests will need to be done
  • Be clear about any medicines you may need to take
  • You may get a computerized neurocognitive test done called ImPACT©
After your appointment:
  • Review everything discussed, so you are clear on follow-up instructions
  • Fill any prescriptions you’re given, and make sure to take them as directed
  • Keep the doctor’s phone number handy, in case you have follow-up questions
