Dr. Visit Guide
The Dr Visit Guide is a critical part of getting to your best health outcomes. How well you’re able to communicate with your Doctors is one of the most important parts of self-advocacy. Advocating for yourself (or others) isn’t always easy, because time is short during medical visits. A good Doctor-Patient relationship requires you show up prepared and make the most of your time together. That means asking good questions, clarifying information, and making sure you understand all of the instructions. It also means being able to articulate your concerns quickly, clearly, and succinctly … and communicating any changes in your health. By taking a more active role, you can help reduce medical errors and avoid costly complications.
