A blog is not a doctor...

Questions to ask your doctor

Dr. Carolyn Clancy, head of the federal (U.S.) government's Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) writes columns aimed at helping consumers obtain better health care. Her latest column refers people to a Question-builder site which helps consumers develop a list of questions her agency has developed which people may wish to ask their doctors. While there is no rocket science here, it is helpful to look over to remind ourselves of what we might want to ask, and most importantly, not to be intimidated or rushed into not getting your questions answered.
