Every patient is a member of our Summit team. Our goal is to empower you to make educated and informed choices regarding your medical care. Through a team approach, access to sub-specialty and multidisciplinary resources is enhanced, and educational opportunities are increased.

We encourage you to ask questions, and we’ve provided a great checklist of topics for you to address as part of your appointment:

  1. What is the technical name of my disease or condition, and what does it mean in plain English?
  2. What is my prognosis (outlook for the future)?
  3. How soon do I need to make a decision about treatment?
  4. Will I need any additional tests, and if so what kind and when?
  5. What are my treatment options?
  6. What are the pros and cons of my treatment options?
  7. Now that I have this diagnosis, what changes will I need to make in my daily life?
  8. What resources do you recommend for further information?
