What to Know Before Seeing a Doctor in the United States for the First Time



As a new immigrant to the United States, it can sometimes be overwhelming to do something as ordinary as going the doctor's office. It's hard to know what to expect and how best to prepare. This website serves as a guide to give a general idea of what to know before seeing a doctor, but is not designed to diagnose, treat or advise on medical conditions. Only your doctor can do that.
