  That is great as I have a book I take to all Dr appoints and keep track of who I saw and why, my BP, weight and other vitals....and it has a area for addresses and phone numbers of all Drs I see, and I have copies of all my medical records....

Do they also want work, or tax info...wondering if that is something we need to take along....or keep a 2nd set of records for?

Well if you go with a lawyer they will gather all of your medical records. You need that as well as a detailed list of all your doctors with phone numbers and addresses. It is also extremely important to keep all your dr appts on a list or a calender as well.. the lawyers then do a great job of guiding you through the remaining steps.
