How to prepare for a doctors appointment – injury solicitors Feltham
If you are going to see your doctor about any illness or injury then you will want to use your time wisely. Doctors cannot give you very much time purely because there are so many people to see. They can only diagnose and treat you based on the information you give them and what they can see with their own eyes, so it is important that you prepare in advance and know everything that you need to say and what you need to remember so that you don’t miss anything out.
You will also need to be appropriately prepared to make sure that your appointment goes quickly and smoothly and you don’t waste any time. Here are some tips on how to prepare for your appointment.
- Check the time. Make sure that you know what time your appointment is and that you are there with plenty of time to spare. If you get there late then you will have even less time and may be feeling too stressed to give the information you need to.
- Dress appropriately. Think about what you are seeing the doctor for and wear clothing that gives the doctor easy access to that part of your body. If you have injured your leg and show up in skinny jeans and high boots then you will waste time trying to get undressed.
- Make a list. List all of your symptoms, times of day and dates of when symptoms and injuries have occurred. Your doctor needs all of this information to make an accurate diagnosis.
- Write a condensed medical history. Make a note of anything relevant in your medical history which will help your doctor to make a diagnosis and treat you. This would be if the same problem has occurred in the past, or even if it is a hereditary problem.
