How to best utilize your visit to the doctor

(0 reviews)

Doctors’ clinics are usually crowded with patients. Hence it is quite likely that you spend most of your time waiting for your turn rather than actually meeting the doctor. Your actual time spend with the doctor is generally between 10 to 15 minutes.

How can you make the best use of these few minutes? Following are few tips:

Make an appointment: Always try to visit your doctor with a prior appointment, except in case of an emergency.

Carry all your medical reports: Always carry your medical documents with you to the doctor, your antenatal card, test reports, prescription etc.

Make a list and prioritize your problems: Make a note of the problems or worries you want to discuss with your doctor. Prioritize the problems you want to discuss, depending upon the rate with which they bother you.

Discuss all your problems: Discuss all your problems with your doctor. Some may be of minute worry to you but may have high significance for your health.

Turn off your mobile: Switch off your cell phone at the time of your appointment.

Get all your tests done: Get the prescribed tests and scans done before you visit the doctor so that your doctor can see the reports.

Get yourself fully arranged and ready before you meet your doctor, so that you can best use those few minutes discussing your health with the doctor.
