You have communicated well with your Doc if
A clear understanding of what precisely your doctor has told you is crucial if you're going to work together as a team.
At the end of your visit, you should be able to:
1. Describe your condition fairly accurately.
2. Know what additional tests are needed and why.
3. Explain your treatment, including the use of medications.
4. State if and when you need to return.
If you can't fulfill the preceding objectives, you're not communicating properly with your doctor!
