One of the cornerstones of good patient care is effective doctor-patient communication. Very few doctors, or patients, are ever given any training on how to help that happen, however. The following talking points are meant to serve as tools to assist in communication with your doctor. Why not read this survey to help identify how you communicate!
1) Do you have a hearing problem? If so don’t assume that your doctor will know. Tell him!
2) Do you see well? Most people assume your vision is good, unless told otherwise. Many people use visual aids to help their explanations. If you don’t see well, say so!
