Grace, where will you be traveling from?

@grace28, I want to add my welcome to Connect. I have been traveling to Mayo Rochester annually for the past 10 years. To this day, I continue to be amazed at the quality of care and the efficiency that Mayo provides. You will be greeted by name for your appointment, and the doctor or nurse will introduce themself to you. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and you can expect to get explanations that you will understand. You might see 1 doctor, however, that doctor has a team of experts that are available for him/her to consult with about your treatment if he/she needs to. If you have labs drawn, or any scans or tests, you will get the results during your visit.
Wear comfortable shoes, take a sweater, a tote bag and water ot a leakproof water bottle.

I have not been at Mayo since last spring, so be sure to read the updated information related to the coronavirus this discussion and the links that @colleenyoung has shared with you.
Have you got any kind of a schedule or paperwork from them? Is someone going with you?
What are some specific questions you would like to ask?
