Your First Appointment

During your first appointment at Alaska Medical Specialties, you will meet some of the outstanding specialists that will be part of your care team, including your physician, nurse practitioners, licensed therapists, nurses and other support staff.

Your first appointment is an excellent opportunity to ask questions. You and your doctor will cover a lot of general information about your diagnosis and what the next steps are going to be.

  • General physical exam (including height and weight).

  • X-rays, scans or any other diagnostic testing
  • Overview of medical health, family health and current condition
  • Overview of medications

On your initial visit, please bring the following information with you:

  • Updated insurance card & photo ID
  • Referral
  • List of allergies
  • List of current medications (prescription or over-the-counter), including name, dosage, frequency
