Q: How can I make the most of the time I have with my doctors? 

A: Bring a complete list of your allergies, medicines and dosages, either by writing them down, taking photos of the bottles on your phone or bringing them to the appointment. Start a health journal for each member of your family, and write down your top three concerns. Bring that journal to the appointment and make notes to help you remember what the doctor said. If you don’t understand, ask. Never feel embarrassed or shy about asking for clarification about something the doctor says. The best health care is when the patient and the doctor are on the same page.
