It is important to always carry an updated medication list with you in the event of an emergency. This will assist medical professionals in reacting to a situation and expediting the care that is needed with greater accuracy.

On the medication list, it may also be helpful to list the following additional information:
Computer systems at other doctors’ offices may not always communicate or link with one another. When coming to your next appointment, please bring an updated list, pictures of your medication bottles, and/or the bottles of medications for our Medical Assistant to review and verify with you. You can find our blank medications list on our website under the Resources tab here.
As always, stay safe!
