What are some tips to get the most out of my appointments with my doctor?
Itís important to talk to your doctor or nurse throughout your treatment to make sure youíre on track to reach your treatment goals. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your next visit with your doctor:
Make a list of questions youíd like to ask your doctor. This will help you make sure all your questions and concerns are answered. If you donít understand something your doctor says, ask for more information or tell your doctor to explain it again.
Bring a pen and paper to write down what you and your doctor talk about during your visit. This can help you remember the information when you return home and may help you think of other questions to ask at your next appointment. You can also consider utilizing the voice memo application found on most smartphones.
Bring a friend or family member
You donít have to go through this journey alone. Bring a friend or family member with you to your next appointment for support. This person can also help you take notes or ask questions. This person can also help remind you when itís time for your next PCR test.
Talk about your test results
Be sure to talk to your doctor about your results and make sure you understand what they mean. Being more aware of how your medicine is working will help you talk with your physician or nurse about your condition and treatment.
Keep all your doctors informed
Youíre probably seeing several doctors as part of your treatment plan. Speak with your doctor or nurse to make sure that all your doctors are aware of your progress and are sharing your test results with each other.
