In brief: See below
Pretty much the same as other doctor visits.
They will take a history of your concerns/illness. What you have done to treat it. Have you seen other providers, and what they recommended. Most likely a family history, as well. Then an examination will occur. They will tell your their diagnosis, and then recommend treatment options.
