Talking to your Doctor

More and more, today’s patients are playing an active role in their health care. Patients and doctors work closely together to achieve the best possible level of health care. An important part of this partnership is clear communication. Asking the right questions-and obtaining quality information about prevention, diagnosis, treatment and recovery help ensure safety, prevent errors and improve health.

Visit the National Institutes of Health for resources on talking to your physicians about your medical care.
