Preparing for Your Visit to a Drexel Primary Care Practice

Medical Professionals

Drexel Medicine's primary care providers at our Philadelphia-area internal medicine and family medicine offices are committed to providing you with the best possible care experience at every visit. In addition to providing the highest standard of health care, we strive to address your questions and concerns. One way that you can help to ensure that you get the most out of your appointment with your primary care doctor is by preparing for your visit in advance.

Tips for Preparing for Your Primary Care Appointment

  • If this is your first appointment with Drexel Family Medicine or Drexel Internal Medicine bring the completed New Patient Questionnaire with you.
    Download New Patient Questionnaire [PDF].
  • On the day of your visit, bring your insurance card and cardholder information, photo identification and payment for your co-pay.
  • Make a list of medications and supplements that you are currently taking (including doses and frequency) and bring it with you.
  • Develop a list of questions and any symptoms that you have (including where they are, how long they last and what aggravates or relieves them) and share it with your doctor or nurse practitioner.
  • If you are nervous about your appointment or concerned that you may forget important information then bring a friend or a family member who can take notes, drive or ask questions.
