In reply to Meds, new pdoc and a question, posted by lymom3 on October 31, 2006, at 8:53:44
> My question is does anyone else do that when seeing a new doc?
Yes. I have on my computer lists of meds I've taken, what worked, what didn't, side effects, etc. I also make typed lists of symptoms that need addressing. I either present the pdoc with their own copy, or bring it with me to help me present things verbally. They seem to appreciate it. As you said, time is limited. It helps to be efficient and will enable them to spend enough time asking the questions they want to ask.
Good luck with your new doc.
