Treatment plan

Ask what the next steps are in your treatment plan. Your doctor may have told you that you need a laboratory test, or physical therapy, or a new medication.


Write down any questions you want to ask your doctor. Writing them down may trigger a few more that you hadn't originally considered.

Symptoms and concerns

Write down your symptoms, complaints, and concerns. If you do this before you arrive at your doctor's office, you won't forget to mention important details.
