Have you ever left the Dr.'s Office feeling like none of your questions were answered? Were you left wondering if the doctor actually heard your concerns? Have you switched your family doctor a couple times in the past few years?
I was one of those parents a few years ago. I was at the doctor's office several times a year with my son. And every time I left the office I was in a fog as to our next move. I constantly wondered if we needed a new doctor. I never seemed to understand everything he was explaining to me. Often I felt confused and frustrated about the visits. Then one day I woke up and decided it wasn't the doctor's fault. This is something I needed to take hold of, something that I needed to research for myself and stop looking to him for the answers. And so I did.
It was as simple as the Internet. People sometimes overlook the value of it. You need to take the time to research for yourself, before attending a Dr. appt.
Step 1: Search the Internet for whatever the problem is. And don't be afraid to print the web pages and take them along to the doctor. Knowledge is the key.
Step 2: Be prepared. Write a list of questions that you want answered. Or a list of new treatments that you'd like your doctor to look into. Sometimes they are eager to be informed because medicines are changing daily and they may not even be aware of new procedures or treatments. Doctors are just like us, they learn new things in the medical practice everyday.
Step: 3 No Questions in a dumb one. If your doctor speaks to you with a lot of medical terminology, and you haven't a clue ...don't pretend. Ask them to explain it in simpler terms. Doctors deal with nurses & other doctors everyday. They sometimes forget that we aren't familiar with those terms.
Step 4: Get to your appt. early. Try to arrive earlier than your appt. If you do, not only will you have time to think and look over your list. But if the doctor's previous client has a short visit you may get taken back just a few minutes early. Those few minutes may be all you need to get more questions answered and help the doctor to not feel rushed.
By doing those few steps I've found that I can walk out of the office with my head high and a smile on my face. I know that I got the best out of my appointment and I look forward to the next time I get to pick his brain. And the best part of all is I know that I am making a major impact on my child's future health care. It's up to us to ask the questions and have the knowledge to comprehend the answer. Get on the internet and make a difference in your child's health.
