Take charge of your own healthcare.
If you want quality healthcare, you have to take responsibility for communicating clearly and accurately with your doctor. It is easy to feel intimidated when talking to your doctor, but remember that it is your body and your health you are dealing with. You have a right to the best care your doctor can give you. Dont hesitate to ask questions, share information you have learned in your research, or ask about an alternative treatment you would like to try. Make a list of everything you want to discuss with your doctor and take it with you so you dont forget anything.
