Use this information as a guideline and adjust according to feedback from your doctor. Have a discussion with your doctor and see what information is critical to them. ​

Dr. Cockrell’s is probably the most simple: Do you see anything funny? ​

I’ve worked with other doctors who wanted to know occupation and hobbies, while some wanted to know medications or health history. ​

​Ask them if there is any information that could help in their examination. You can also communicate this information to anyone else that might end up helping the patient during their visit to your office.
