How To Choose A Doctor - SeniorSite.com Here are some questions to ask yourself when choosing a doctor:

Are you comfortable with the doctor? Can you openly discuss your feelings and talk about personal concerns such as sexual and emotional problems?

Does the doctor listen to you and answer all your questions about the causes and treatment of your physical problems? Or is he or she vague, impatient, or unwilling to answer?

Does the doctor take a thorough "history" on you and ask about past physical and emotional problems, family medical history, drugs you are taking, and other matters affecting your health?



Does the doctor seem to prescribe drugs automatically rather than deal with the real causes of your medical problems?

Does the doctor attribute your problems to "old age"?

Once you've found a physician you're comfortable with, you'll want the maximum benefit from your visits. Here are some tips:

Before your visit, make a list of any health problems you're experiencing, as well as questions you wish to ask the doctor. While the list should be in order of importance, it should still include even things that seem trivial. You may want to keep a notebook and jot down problems as they occur, rather than wait for your appointment.

Bring in all medications you are currently taking, both prescription and over-the-counter. Include vitamins and other supplements, as well as herbal and homeopathic preparations.

If memory is a problem, or if there is a language barrier, bring along a family member or friend to help you communicate with the doctor. If you're worried you'll forget some of the information the doctor is giving you, ask that it be put in writing.

Discuss with your doctor any situations in your life that may be causing you stress. Have you left your job, or moved to a new apartment? Is a loved one experiencing health or money problems? Be honest about how you feel. Tell your doctor if you're having trouble sleeping, or feeling depressed. Talk about sexual difficulties, even if you feel embarrassed, or consider the problems "normal" for your age. Talking about these issues with a health professional can help you avoid depression or strained marital relations.
