Prepare for your first appointment with the following resources:
At your first appointment with the Heart and Vascular Institute at UPMC, we will need to update our records with you. If you can bring a list of current medications and past medical records, it will help us expedite the process so we can get to the heart of the situation.
Once in our office, you will fill out new patient forms. They will ask you about personal health history, your lifestyle and family history of illness. Try to answer the questions as best you can, so we can be as thorough as possible in assessing your condition.
Your first appointment will be a general examination with a doctor, who may decide to order additional testing or services depending on your condition. Our skilled physicians will do everything they can to make sure your first appointment goes smoothly and that you understand each step of the way.
