Questions for your Doctor
The relationship with your doctor is one of the most important elements in healthcare planning. It’s important to learn about a doctor’s credentials and experience as you decide who the right doctor is for you and your family. We’ve compiled questions to help guide you in the process of choosing your doctor. In addition to having questions prepared, ask a trusted friend or family member to join you during your doctor’s appointment. They can provide comfort, support, advocacy, and serve as a second set of ears. It’s also not unusual to audiotape your doctor appointment for future reference.
