KEEPING YOU INFORMED, KEEPING YOU HEALTHY
We want to remind you how important it is to share everything about your health with your doctor. Proper diagnosis and effective treatment are most likely available when your doctor knows all details concerning your condition. Remember that discussions with your doctor are confidential. When visiting with a doctor, we often forget important details because we are in a stressful situation. So before visiting your doctor, write down a list of questions and concerns. Make sure you understand everything your doctor tells you. Bring a friend or family member with you to help keep track of all of the information.
It is also important to take your current prescription bottles and details about your medication with you to the doctor. When given new medication, make sure to follow your doctor’s instructions. If you begin to feel worse or feel your treatment is not helping, follow-up with your doctor so adjustments can be made.
