A list of current medications and a concise medical history is good to have when visiting any provider. It can help assure that any pertinent information your provider might want to know is available. Here is an example of a brief but thorough medical history. It can give you an idea of what to include.  You may also want to write down your top priorities for that visit. That might be obtaining a referral, managing a symptom, or concerns about side effects from a medication. Making a list of your top three priorities can help both you and your provider focus on what’s most important to you for that visit.
