Good communication is pivotal to success in many relationships, including the one with your doctor. 

Many people feel that the direction that health care and insurance has taken doesn’t co-exist with open communication.  The doctor seems rushed to see more patients due to limited re-imbursement, which leads to less time with each patient.  BUT, communication opportunities are critical to the success of your long-term health.  Here are pitfalls you must avoid:

-Miscommunicating your true diet, smoking, or alcohol consumption.  If you feel judged by your doctor, then find a new one.  The honest information n you give about these facts is critical to success in evaluating your health and prescription interaction issues.

-Be honest about your sexual history and present partners.  Secrets in this area, can be detrimental.

-Don’t just tell the doctor you feel fine if you don‘t.  How can they help you without information?!

Arrive at doctor appointment with:

A)     A list of your vitamins, supplements, and over-the-counter medications that you take regularly.

B)      A list of the medicines prescribed by other doctors including proper names and dosages prescribed.

C)      A list of your questions or concerns.

D)     A list of your family history of chronic health issues, such as cancer, high cholesterol, heart disease and other diseases.

Success in your relationship with your physician or pharmacist can be a great benefit to your long-term health.  If you don’t feel satisfaction or trust in that relationship, then use the system checker box on the homepage of YourCity.MD, and read the testimonials of other patients and find a new doctor.
