Do you ask your doctor many questions?

"Feeling comfortable with asking the right questions"

Do you ask your doctor many questions?

Julie McCrossin:

Do you ask many questions?

Speaker:

I do if I feel comfortable with the person.

Speaker:

You've got to ask the basic questions, I mean, I possibly don't delve deeply into it unless I really have to because I've developed that rapport with the doctor that I'll trust him.

Speaker:

I never really know what kind of questions to ask because, you know, when you go there it's just like it hurts, it doesn't feel right, can you tell me what's wrong.

Speaker:

Because I want to know what I'm taking, why I'm diagnosed, what the reason is, what the side-effects are.
