What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know WILL Hurt You — 4 Comments

  1. It’s so important that your docs know what – if nay – medications you are taking. I always advise persons to bring their medications or a CURRENT list with them to doctor’s appointments rather than guessing how my mg of this or that they take. #BLMGirl

  2. Thank you for this article! As a patient I recognized the importance of sharing #2 when visiting my physician’s office several months ago and her response was “Wow…thank you for coming prepared with details…this really helps…”. I was able to share the date my symptoms started, periods of greater intensity in pain, what I was doing when it did, what medications I took to relieve it, and any other symptoms that preceded and followed the concern. I was not afraid to be honest – partially for selfish reasons as I really needed my medical issue resolved. However, it did teach me a lesson to be detailed, yet concise with my physician. Your website and email newsletters have been extremely informative!

    • Thank you, Tawanna. It makes me so happy to hear about patients taking their health into their own hands. I am happy you are finding value in the articles and newsletters!
