Please bring a complete list of ALL current medications you take on a regular or “as-needed” basis. Also bring your pharmacy information (name and address) to your appointment, as we routinely send prescriptions electronically. Keep in mind that your initial visit will take 2-3 hours. During the testing procedure, we will be using a marking pen on your back and arms. This may cause your shirt to become stained.
