Don’t Make These Mistakes at the Doctor!

funny-doctor-quotesThings To Do At The Doctor

Yep, be sure to shower, wear clean underwear, and don’t throw anything when the nurse still hasn’t called your name ONE HOUR after your appointment was SUPPOSED to be! In addition to those tips, we happened upon these seven recommendations on Oprah.com on how to have the best experience at the doctor. Read more on the Oprah site.

1) Don’t Take the 11:30am Monday Appointment

If you can’t get the first appointment of the day on Monday, opt for the first one after lunch, or a mid-week appointment — people do all kinds of crazy shit on the weekend, and then haggle to be seen on Monday to help fix it!

2) Don’t Let Your Doctor Snub You

Your doctor is obviously busy, and might be rushing through things — stop to acknowledge that he/she seems busy, and ask how their day is going.

3) Don’t Wait Until You’re in the Exam Room To Know What You’re Going to Say

Write it all down: Why you’re there, all the things you need checked out, all your symptoms, when they started, the prescriptions you need written etc…it’ll save a lot of time and headaches.

4) Don’t Just Smile and Nod

This is your health and body — speak up!

5) Don’t Forget to Mention ALL of the Medicines You’re Taking/Have Taken

This includes multivitamins, and the prescriptions you were SUPPOSED to take but didn’t!

6) Don’t Let Technology Take Over the Appointment

Whether your doctor is hovered over his/her laptop or iPad writing up that prescription, or you’re checking your phone, it’s important to make sure to have quality face-to-face time — make eye contact!

7) Don’t Always Trust the Nurse/Physician’s Assistant

Granted, sometimes the nurse knows more than the doc (!), but if your doctor told you one thing and the nurse is taking a different path, make sure you ask him/her to confirm with your doctor. Use phrases like, “I’m afraid your actions could cause harm, please let me talk to someone else immediately.”
