Getting the Most Out of Your Doctor's Appointments

  • Bring your updated medication list and plan to review it with your doctor
  • Make a list of your questions and concerns
  • Bring a family member or friend with you and ask them to take notes
  • Ask questions if you are not sure you understand the information

When thinking about questions to ask your doctor, consider:

  • Your return to work or driving
  • Unusual symptoms you have had
  • Changes in medication or side effects
  • Recommended limitations to your activity
  • Follow-up appointment plans
