She asks him for his insurance information, his date of birth and the reason for his visit. She schedules him to come in next Tuesday.

Antonio arrives at Dr. Brown's office, his family doctor that he has seen since he was a baby. Carla, the medical assistant is at the front desk. She has him fill out some paperwork, registers him in the computer and asks him to take a seat in the waiting room

Charles, the registered nurse asks antonio to follow him. Charles takes his blood pressure, his temperature and his height and weight. Charles asks him how he's feeling, and Antonio says that he had a cold a few weeks ago, but feels good now and just came to get his sport's physical filled out. Charles leaves and tells Dr. Brown that Antonio is ready for his appointment.

Dr. Brown comes in to the examining room. "Antonio, good to see you!" Dr. Brown examines him, and tells him that he is in good health except he noticed that Antonio has gained extra weight this year. Antonio is 20 pounds overweight. Dr. Brown asks him what he has been eating. Antonio says that he doesn't have time to eat right and has been eating a lot of fast food. Dr. Brown says that this is pretty common, and tells him he is going to send him to the nutritionist to help him figure out some ways to eat healthy when you have little free time.
