What to bring up to be a more informed, proactive patient
No matter what you’re there for, a doctor’s office — usually with the smell of disinfectant, the harsh fluorescent lighting, the low-grade anxiety permeating the air — is almost always an unpleasant place to be. And that’s before you even start talking to a doctor. Once you’re in the appointment itself, it can be stressful to keep track of all your medical information. Whether you’re dealing with a serious condition or just trying to stay on top of your health, you’re likely to have questions you want to address.
