I've packed my suitcase 3 times for the trip you are describing ...
Important to state that you will find Mayo Clinic to be very accommodating --- helpful, personalized staff ---
Hotels and restaurants in close proximity to the medical campus ...
I've had the choline scan all 3 times I've been to Mayo Clinic, and have appreciated the consultations with Dr. Kwon each time ---
Here's a tip for you --- over time, I've learned that you CAN request to have your hands at your side during the choline scan --- which is MUCH easier than keeping your arms held back, stretched out. You can ask the technicians to place your hands at your SIDE instead --- MUCH easier and more comfortable, I have learned over time !
After each day of medical testing, then I go to Chester's Restaurant for a nice evening dinner after the tests are all completed --- it is located within walking distance of the medical buildings. Easy to find --- great food!
Best to you on your trip ---
