Livestrong Cancer Institutes Appointment Preparation

Preparing for Your Appointment

Prior to your initial appointment, you will receive multiple emails requesting you to register as a patient at UT Health Austin. You will also receive an email with a detailed questionnaire. We ask that you follow the enrollment instructions in the emails and complete all questionnaires as soon as possible to ensure your providers have time to review your answers prior to your visit.

Please bring the following to your first appointment:

  • One valid form of photo identification (driver’s license, state ID, military ID, or passport)
  • Your current insurance card(s) - both medical and pharmacy benefit cards
  • A list of your current medical providers and their addresses and phone numbers
  • Your preferred pharmacy contact information
  • A list of allergies
  • A copy of your Medical Power of Attorney and Living Will, if completed
  • A detailed list of your medications, including indication (why you take them), dosage (mg, mL, etc.), and frequency (how often you take them)

In addition to the items listed above, you may want to consider bringing:

  • Driving and parking directions (see map)
  • A small notebook for writing notes and questions
  • A laptop or mobile device (you can use our free wireless network, UTGuest, to connect to the Internet)
