Tips

  • Ask questions. Bring a list of questions with you to your appointment. If you think of something after your appointment, many healthcare providers now have services where you can message them off-hours to clarify any questions or concerns you may have. 
  • If you would like, bring a trusted friend or family member with you to your appointment. 
  • Paraphrase. Summarize what your doctor said to you so you can be sure you are on the same page. Always remember, if you disagree with your doctor, it does not hurt to go to another one and get a second opinion.
  • Make sure to select a very good doctor. Look at ratings websites and ask for referances.
