Thank you for considering the Good Neighbor Clinic to help you with a health care need. Let’s talk about what will happen when you come to our clinic: for the first time.
During your first visit:
We will ask you to arrive in 30 minutes before your appointment because we will need to collect some information for our medical chart. Due to Covid 19 you must wear a mask at all times when you are talking with our staff. One family member will be allowed in the clinic with you.
You will meet our social worker or other staff member who will ask you some questions. Interpreters will be available to help. We will ask you for contact information and other demographic data to help us know how to follow up with you regarding additional needs such as lab work results, additional appointments, or access to other services.
We will also go over your health history so our providers have a more complete picture of your health status. If you are on medication please bring them with you to the clinic or write down the names of the medicines and dosage.
We will ask you for a photo ID or take a digital picture of you if you have no ID. This helps make sure we are serving the correct patient who is accessing care with your name.
Before you enter the clinic exam room, we will screen you for Covid symptoms, take your temperature and ask you to wash your hands.
Once in the clinic we will get your weight, pulse and blood pressure readings.
You will be escorted to an exam room, meet one of our nurses, and be seen by one of our providers who will help you with your health issue.
