Prepare for Your Visit

Planning ahead can help reduce the stress of a doctor's office visit. You and your caregivers play a very important role in preparing for your visit.

  • Understand your rights and responsibilities as a patient of Yale medicine and Yale New Haven Hospital.
  • Arrive at least 15 minutes early for your appointment and plan 5 to 10 minutes of additional time to park.
  • Please bring any X-ray, MRI or CT scan images/discs that you have for our doctor/ provider to review.
  • If you need to arrange for special services like a translator or hearing-impaired assistance, please notify our office prior to your visit.
