How to Get the Most Value from Your Appointment

Your relationship with your doctor is a partnership. The better able you are to communicate your needs and understand your options, the more productive your appointment will be and the more likely you are to get the treatment you need.

Before the appointment, research your condition and the treatment options available. Write down your symptoms and their dates of onset. List the questions you want answered.

The time you have with your doctor is all too brief. A little preparation will help you make the most of it.

The Right Doctor in the Right Place

In a perfect world, the right doctor would be right around the corner. In reality, you may need to sacrifice some convenience to find the doctor who best meets your needs. If this doctor isn’t everything you’re looking for, search for nearby doctors.

Bear in mind also that many doctors work out of multiple offices. When you call to make your appointment, be sure to confirm the location.

How to Select the Right Hospital

If you should need to go to a hospital for care, you and your doctor should discuss which hospital provides the best care for your medical needs. Some hospitals may be better equipped and have expertise in performing certain procedures. 

To evaluate a hospital, you’ll want to check the hospital’s experience in treating people with your condition, the quality rating they received for any procedures you need, and their record for keeping patients safe. Discuss your hospital options with your doctor to get the best possible care available.
