Question: What is the best way to communicate my concerns to my doctor? I often feel she doesn’t understand me.

Answer: Communication during doctor appointments is a critical component of quality health care. Daily notes and diaries can help clarify what is needed. Patient satisfaction and quality of care is also supported by office staff that influence your future interactions. Staff should communicate respect for your time and concerns in a compassionate and quiet way. There are many other factors that may influence a patient’s experience.
