My advice:

1. Be honest and open. The pdoc can't make an informed judgment unless s/he has the whole picture.

2. Be assertive about what you need -- in other words, make sure the pdoc has a good sense of what's bothering you the most and doesn't seize on something you consider minor (unless, upon having it pointed out, it seems more important than you gave it credit for).

3. Ask lots of questions. What does the pdoc think you're dealing with (diagnosis/other issues)? Why? What are your options (medical and non-medical) for dealing with it?

4. If you have old report cards, job reviews, or similar things, bring copies with you.

Hope it goes well and you find the pdoc friendly and helpful!
