The Questions You Should Be Asking Your Doctor
If you are experiencing certain symptoms or reaching a milestone in your life or your health, you might already have a few questions in mind for your next doctor’s visit. We are always here to listen and to answer your questions and provide information as best as we can. With that in mind, here are a few other questions you might consider posing at your next appointment: —What can I do to prevent illness? Whether it’s an annual check-up, a colonoscopy, a change in your diet or a test related to your personal health history, we can offer information on preventative care that is relevant to your life and your needs. —Where can I find more information? Whether you want more details on an upcoming test, a genetic condition, or general health and wellness, we can offer additional resources for you.
–What therapies are available? If you need treatment for something, it is best to understand all of the options you have before making a decision. —What is the best way to keep track of my medications? If you are taking several medications – including ones that you take in the morning and at night or medications that could impact others – you might need help determining your best routine for success. This will also help your doctor understand your current challenges and ensure that you are getting exactly what you need. —What else should I be asking? Don’t be afraid to pose an open-ended question to your doctor. We have experience with a variety of conditions, symptoms, ages, concerns – you name it – that we are happy to share. If you have a question, please ask – that’s what we’re here for.
