Arrive Prepared

  • Ask about the best way to forward your records to the doctor when you make the appointment. At times, a specialist in the same medical group, hospital or health care system will have computer access to medical records, but a specialist elsewhere may not
  • Bring your list of questions 
    • Be sure to start with what’s most important in case you don’t have time to get through everything on your list
    • If you don’t have time to get through everything, ask if you can follow up by email/phone
  • Bring contact information of doctors you are currently seeing
  • Bring a list of everything you take and the dosages, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medication, vitamins and supplements
    • Include medications you have tried that caused side effects/you didn’t respond to
    • If easier, bring everything with you/take clear photos with dosage info

Do your Research Ahead of Time

  • Researching health information can benefit both you and your doctor by making you partners in care
  • Be cautious with online sources and rely on reputable medical websites or consult trusted healthcare professionals for accurate information
  • Ask your doctor to review the medical research with you so that you understand how it might be helpful to you

Review Symptoms & History

  • Discuss any changes in your medical history, lifestyle, or medications since your last visit
  • Use a symptom tracker to track symptom duration, severity, and any triggers or patterns you’ve noticed

Record Information

  • Either will help you recall important information and follow any instructions or treatment plans provided

Let your Guard Down

  • Tell the doctor your whole health story and don’t leave anything out
  • Provide details
  • Discuss stress level, diet, exercise, sleep and mental health
  • A good doctor will never think less of you because of the conditions/symptoms you have. Being upfront will help you get the care you need and deserve
