Words worth sharing- 7 steps to get what you need from your doctor—fast! by Pamela Wible MD

Dr. Wible’s article makes several good points about how patient behavior either helps or hinders a physician’s efficiency and ability to meet their needs.  I might have titled it, “How to help your doctor help you.” But I heartily agree with her advice, so  I want to share it with you here.

In summary, her 7 steps are

1. Get organized.

2. Prioritize.

3. Start early.

4. Be human.

5.  Be direct.

6. Plan ahead.

7. Say thank you.

Details are in the article, a quick read. Thank you  Dr. Wible.
