Lots of questions: Regardless of his or her speciality, the doctor will want to know much of the following at your first visit: reason you are there, details of your symptoms, your past health history, current and past medications, allergies to medications, habits (eating, smoking, drinking, exercise, etc.), family history, and previous hospitalization and surgeries, etc.
