Typical Visit

On the morning of your visit to Mayo Clinic, you'll meet with your coordinating doctor for a thorough review of your medical, family and social history. Your doctor then performs a complete physical exam.

You and the doctor will discuss your scheduled appointments and any additional tests that may be appropriate based on your evaluation. Appointments requiring further testing or consultations may take 24 to 48 hours longer.

You'll spend the rest of the day at different testing areas throughout Mayo Clinic. After completing your itinerary, you'll meet with the coordinating doctor again to review and discuss test results. At that time, you may receive additional recommendations for treatment or follow-up.

A written report summarizing your results is mailed to you shortly after your final visit. A letter outlining these results also can be sent to your local doctor.
