Your Next Primary Care Appointment

Get The Most Out of Each Visit

If it’s been a while since your last primary care appointment, it’s natural to be nervous. But you can breathe easier knowing our team of dedicated primary care providers is here for you. We take time to get to know you so we can deliver the care and treatments to help you live your best life. 

Before a Visit

Preparing for Your Next Primary Care Appointment

Whether it’s your first visit or you’ve been coming to Aurora primary care clinics for years, being prepared can help you get the most out of your time with the provider.

Gather this information and bring it with you to your appointment:

  • Details about your health history. This information includes medications you take or any previous medical problems, such as old injuries that are still bothering you.
  • Your health insurance card, if you have insurance. Find out more about the health insurance providers we accept. If you have questions about the insurances we accept, contact your local Aurora clinic by calling (888) 863-5502.
  • A list of questions. The appointment is your time to discuss health concerns with your provider.

Regardless of the reason for your visit, be prepared to:

  • Fill out paperwork. Even if you have been coming to us for years, we may need you to fill out new paperwork if your health insurance has changed or if you need to confirm your personal information.
  • Talk about your lifestyle, including diet and exercise habits. We may also ask about your sleep routine.
  • Discuss changes to your health history or the health history of a close family member, such as parents or siblings.
  • Share information about major life events such as a new job, divorce or other significant changes. Our providers will want to know how the changes are affecting your daily life.
  • Ask questions if you don’t understand something. For example, if we recommend a test, like a health screening, feel free to ask why you need it and how this test will help you.
  • Find out about next steps. Your care may include coming back for a follow-up appointment or scheduling a visit with a specialist. We take time to explain care recommendations and let you know exactly what you need to do.
