Questions To Ask Your Doctor
You are the most important member of your healthcare team—and ultimately, you’re in charge. Your doctor may recommend a specific treatment plan, but the final decision is up to you. It’s important that you ask the right questions when choosing treatment.
There are many factors to consider in choosing treatment, including your age, activity level, and general health. By asking informed, thoughtful questions, you and your doctor can choose the best treatment for your injury and your lifestyle.
1. What treatment or procedure do you recommend and why? Are there any alternatives?
2. What are the benefits of this treatment plan in terms of pain relief and mobility? How long will those benefits last? Will this procedure solve the problem?
