A doctor's referral is not necessary to make an appointment at Mayo Clinic, although information on a patient's past treatment is always helpful.
What to bring to your appointment
Bring the following with you when you come to Mayo Clinic for your child's appointment:
- A list of your child's current medications and how much he/she is taking of each. You may bring the bottles or containers with you to your first appointment.
- Medical information and X-rays supplied by your local physician, if requested by Mayo Clinic.
- Any forms you were asked to bring with you. The name, address and telephone number of the physician who referred your child, if applicable.
- Written authorization of referral from your HMO or PPO if you are covered by one of these organizations.
Your child's insurance information and Medicare card if you have one.
- A copy of any living will/advance directive, if applicable. If your child has a living will or other advance directive, it is important that you bring a copy for the physician to review. It will then be placed in your child's medical record.
- Your child's Mayo Clinic registration number and plastic ID card if you were given one at an earlier visit.
- Items to help pass the time while you and your child wait between appointments. These may include books, magazines, travel games, writing or coloring materials, knitting, embroidery or other small handwork. You may also bring a battery-powered laptop computer or hand-held video games if you wish.
