If it's your first visit to a pulmonologist, you should prepare yourself for the appointment following this checklist. To begin, please print and fill out the New Patient Form prior to your first appointment
If your chest scan came back a little abnormal, your pulmonologist will probably want you to return for another appointment. While the news may be a little worrying, going back for a follow-up appointment after receiving an abnormal chest scan is also the right moment to ask any questions you have about your symptoms and your concerns. By arming yourself with the best possible arsenal to obtain information, you will be better equipped to handle any diagnosis.
