Going to the Doctor? Here are a few tips! Don’t forget to tell them about small changes with your body or any changes in your over counter medication regimens. So next time you are heading to the doctor’s office, prepare with these 3 items:
1) A list of your questions and things you’ve noticed about your body
2) A pen to take notes
3) A 2nd piece of paper for writing down:
— your blood pressure
— your pulse
— any other important information the doctor, physician assistant or nurse tells you.
Of course, you can use a smartphone if that’s easier for you. The important thing is to prepare before you go to the doctor’s office. Plan to share information. And plan to write down the information you hear at the doctor’s office.
