It happens that after the appointment you leave the doctor forgetting to ask about something, you may have become worried, could not formulate and as a result did not receive an answer to the questions you wanted to ask. As a result, there remains dissatisfaction with the visit and unresolved problems. It often also happens that the patient comes to the appointment unprepared, and this leads to a decrease in the effectiveness of the reception, delaying the diagnostic process.

If you want the doctor's consultation to be as effective and high-quality as possible, you should come to the appointment prepared, thereby  You will reduce the time for the mandatory procedure of clarifying and entering into the outpatient card information related to the history of your diseases(s), the history of your life.  Therefore, it is important to carefully consider questions to the doctor. You can write down the most important questions for you, as well as prepare answers to the questions that the doctor will definitely ask you. 

We suggest that you think about and write down the answers to the questions that all the specialist doctors will ask you:

What are you complaining about at the moment? Refresh your memory of the onset and development of the disease. Think about the reasons for it.When you first noted these complaints, the symptoms appeared periodically or constantly, how much discomfort these symptoms cause you, which of the symptoms, in your opinion, have increased and which have decreased during the illness, how do you assess the pain (if any). Highlight the main thing that bothers you. If something hurts, then the doctor needs to know: how, how much, where and how often it hurts, what provokes it, etc.
Think about the illnesses, injuries, and operations you've had (since there may be a connection between the problem that's bothering you and the illnesses, injuries, and operations you've had).
Whether there was (or is) an allergic reaction. If there is, then what and how it manifests itself.
Are there any bad habits (alcohol, smoking)? How many cigarettes do you smoke per day?
What diseases did your family members suffer from - blood relatives? Cardiovascular diseases, thyroid diseases, oncological diseases, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, etc.?
Take with you the statements available on hand, the results of previous consultations, information about completed studies (ultrasound, ECG, X-ray, CT, etc.) and surgical interventions (if any)
Make a list of the medications you are taking (even those that are not related to a specific medical problem) with an indication of the dosage. (you can bring empty medicine boxes with you)
Write down the questions you would like to ask the doctor.

Download a memo for the patient before going to the doctor.
