Comprehensive Visits

What happens the day I come in for the comprehensive visit?

During your comprehensive visit, you can expect to be evaluated and treated by a team that includes:

  • Hematologist
  • Nurse
  • Social Worker
  • Physical Therapist
  • Genetic Counselor
  • Education Specialist (Pediatrics only)
  • Nutrition Specialist (Pediatrics only)

Patients will also be made aware of any research opportunities that may be offered at our center. These are optional but may aid in future care of current and future patients living with bleeding or clotting disorders.

How long does a comprehensive visit take? 

Due to the fact that you will be seen by our entire team, patients can plan on comprehensive visits taking approximately 4 hours.

What should I bring to my appointment?

All Patients should plan on bringing: 

  • Current insurance information, including your health insurance card(s).
  • Name, address and phone numbers of your primary care physician and dentist.
  • Virginia Bleeding Disorders Program Application (typically this application will be mailed to you prior to your visits, but we have applications on hand).
  • Shorts for physical therapy evaluation.
  • Infusion logs if on home therapy.
  • List of current medications.
  • List of questions you might have for the team.
