Lessons from the Hospital

Posted by paultpwong on December 3, 2013

questions to ask your doctor

“One precious lesson I have learned in the hospital: Don’t be passive and let the doctors do things to you. Instead, as the important questions and maintain your right to make the final decision.

Important questions to ask the doctor(s):
1) What are your treatment plans for me?
2) Is this medical procedure necessary?
3) Are there other options?
4) What might be the consequences and risk factors?
5) What is the pain level involved in the procedure?
6) Have you done the necessary assessment or are you trying to discover the cause just by trial and error?”
