Studies show… your doctor’s advice may blur from memory, but there’s a good way to keep it in focus!
When we’re under the weather – or have any health concerns – our minds and memories simply don’t operate at 100%. Fortunately, smartphones help us “fill in the blanks.” For every doctor’s appointment, ask their permission to record your conversation, so you won’t miss a detail.
Have to admit some doctors are uncomfortable with this request. Here’s a good workaround: explain how recording their advice benefits them!
“Everything you’re saying is so important!
I don’t want to bother you later if I forget something.”
Then, listen later, as often as you like. Have loved ones who want to know how you’re doing? Just hit “send” to share the recording.
We have a quick checklist to help you prep for every meeting with your doctor – and get the most out of every minute together!
