You should always be prepared when meeting with your doctor. You should firstly book an appointment time that best suits your availability and provide details of your concern so a proper length time can be scheduled. When meeting your doctor, share your symptoms, relevant health history and any medications you take. Telling your doctor any relevant information will allow them to better understand your health concern and give you more information about what to do next. It is important to always ask questions about anything you are unsure about and seek clarification.
Before you leave your appointment, make sure you find out if you need to return for another visit and clarify any steps you need to take. Schedule a follow up appointment if necessary. You may receive prescription medication upon your appointment, and it is always important to make sure you know what it’s for and how often you need to take it. If you have any other questions or concerns, take the time to contact your doctor for more information.
