If you do not get a chance to complete the forms before your visit, please arrive at least 30 minutes before your appointment. These forms include questions about your past and current medical history, surgeries, hospitalizations, family history, current and past medications and supplements.  Additional questions include lifestyle factors that could affect you health, alcohol, drug, and tobacco use, dietary, physical activity and sleep habits.Please bring copies of any recentbloodwork and tests results to your first visit.

This information is in your health history questionnaire. Dr. Keller may order specific laboratory or diagnostic tests to more thoroughly identify your health needs.
