Questions for Your Doctor

Creating and maintaining a good relationship with qualified doctors is one of the most important elements of overall healthcare planning. Some people feel nervous when speaking with a doctor-especially a neurosurgeon. It is important, however, to find out about the doctor’s experience and whether there is a good “fit” between the doctor and your family before entrusting him or her with your care or the care of someone you love. We have compiled lists of questions that we believe will help you discover important information and establish a good relationship.

We strongly recommend that you take someone with you to the doctor’s appointment for comfort, support, advocacy, to offer an impartial opinion and serve as a second set of ears to review information afterward. Some people also like to audiotape their doctor appointments for later referral and clarification.

    Hi. I am currently researching Hydrocephalus for a Year 12 assignment. Are there any comments you would like to make for my assignment as I would love to get a doctor’s opinion.

      I’ve flown many times with no problems. I belong to a hydrocephalus group on FaceBook and this question has been asked many times. I’ve never seen a post where someone has had problem with flying with hydrocephalus.
