    If you use the search on this site, upper right on page, type in your concerns, ex: What to bring to Doctor consultation....
    You should be led to a post that has information and can guide you.

    Did new doctor office request any paper work? Or testing results? actual CDs of tests?
    Anything you need to actively gather? If so, did they want it sent early to office in preparation? or for you to bring along at time of visit?
    Or any other new forms they may want filled out prior to visit? or at time of visit?

    There are also posts here re questions for doctor visit.

    I don't see mention of your situation, but you may want to use search for that...for better understanding and
    besides the other posts, you may be led to articles and or videos that may be helpful.

    When I use the search, often times I seem to have more questions. Sometimes I may continue search, but most often I write my questions down in preparation for doctor visit.

    At the beginning of my chronic pain, I would bring a family member or friend with me.
    They took notes of appointment. Even if I understand everything Doctor is saying, I have difficult time to recall and explain to my loved ones later.

    I also gave them permission to ask questions, as they may think of things that I have missed.
    It is difficult for me to concentrate while in pain, and also, many times my loved ones have noticed things that I'm unaware of...and may forget to mention to doctor.
    Example may be....one of the ways I described the pain, that I am forgetting at visit.

    But hopefully I catch most things on my prepared list for visit.

    It is disappointing to continue to have pain while waiting!
