It’s important to know that clinic staff are eager to make your visit a positive experience and answer all of your questions. You can prepare for a successful visit by thinking about what you want to discuss with your provider during your visit.
Here are some things you may want to think about when deciding on a birth control method. Talk them over with your health care provider.
Don’t forget to bring:
Proof of Citizenship:
- Your U.S. Birth Certificate or Passport. Can’t find it? No worries, you can still be seen and we can help you get proof.
- If you were born outside of the U.S. and have been a lawful permanent resident for five or more years you do not need to bring any additional documentation.
Identification like a driver's license or state identification card (something that has your picture or physical description).
Health insurance information, if you have coverage.
