Wondering Jews: How to Talk so Your Health Provider Will Listen (Really!)
Thursday, February 13, 2:00pm
Is this your typical appointment? You are sitting in that little examining room waiting for your doctor. The door flies open, your distracted doctor is late (again). He or she fires off quick questions that you can or cannot answer. Then comes a diagnosis, maybe some follow-up lab work and possibly a prescription or a referral. Maybe you are asked even MORE questions, and your care provider leaves.
Are you feeling like “something was missing” from your appointment?
Many of us walk away from the doctor’s office frustrated because our questions were not completely answered and other questions that you meant to ask are remembered post-appointment.
This workshop will:
- Offer failsafe ways to make the most of your physician appointment(s);
- Help you understand the circumstances under which most physicians and health care professionals work;
- Give tips so you can be prepared for most of the question’s physicians will ask you;
- Provide ways to maximize your health care appointments so that you and your provider enjoy more meaningful and productive sessions.
