Welcome to the group! You always can depend on Trixie's advice, btw. My only thought is this: no matter how cool and calm you may feel as a health care professional, you may want to bring someone with you to the meeting who takes good notes and is not intimidated by asking questions, or, if you don't have someone like that to accompany you, get permission to record the session. They throw a lot at you all at once, and don't necessarily provide complete written information or in a useful format; and the people with whom you meet may not necessarily be able to answer your questions (or will say that "everything is explained in the folder" given to you… it will not be) but s/he/theywill expect you to sign reams of paper authorizing the treatment plan… the mind reels. If you were given any verbal information in advance, start doing your research now. That may help with your list of questions.

Thank you so much for the advice. I will definitely have someone with me and take notes.
