How to Prepare for Your First Appointment

Here are a few things to keep in mind when you make an appointment.

  • Your initial appointment will be in BIDMC’s Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic on the 6th floor of the Lowry Medical Office Building at 110 Francis Street, Boston.
  • When you schedule your visit, you may need to answer a few questions about your health and personal history, such as your age and any medications you may be taking.
  • Please bring a list of your current medications and your insurance card.
  • Check with your insurance company to see if your policy includes care and treatment at BIDMC. We can help if you have questions about the coverage information you receive.
  • Bring a list of any questions you have for your caregivers, and a notebook to jot down the answers.
  • If you’re having a procedure, someone must accompany you home after your treatment.
  • We encourage you to invite a family member or trusted friend to your appointment.
