What to bring
to your sleep disorder consultation
     
           
   

Now that you've made an appointment for a sleep disorder consultation, Doctors Thornton and Baker are looking forward to meeting you. Our goal is to help you sleep better and become healthier. To help your visit go smoothly, please follow these simple instructions.

 

 

 
  The day before your appointment      
           
 

1   

Please call and confirm your appointment at (407) 303-1558. This will ensure that the appointment is kept.
 
     
  2    You should have received an information packet in the mail. Fill out the questionnaire in the packet in its entirety. This will make the time with your doctor more efficient and informative.
 
     
  3    Make a list of all medications that you're taking so the doctor has a clear picture of your current treatment.
 
     
  4    If you have any questions, write them down so you wonít forget to ask the doctor about them.
 
     
  5    If you like, ask a spouse or friend to come with you to the appointment. They can serve as another set of ears, or can help take notes for you.

 

     
  The day of your appointment      
           
  1   

Before leaving for the appointment, be sure to check if you have or need the following:

Insurance card
Identification form (driverís license)
Prescription from your doctor (if one was needed for the consultation)
Filled-out questionnaire
List of drugs youíre taking
List of any questions
Map and directions to the sleep center
     
           
  2    Come directly to the sleep center. (You do not have to check in or pre-register anywhere else.)
 
     
  3    During the consultation, feel free to ask the doctor to repeat anything that you feel you donít understand. Repeat back to the doctor in your own words what you think youíve heard to ensure that you understand him.
 
     
  4    If you made a list of questions, donít pull it out right at the start. But as the consultation winds down, review the list to check whether all your questions have been satisfactorily answered.
