Here are a few pointers on how you can make the most of your Onboarding Consult
Give accurate past medical history and current medical needs, to help the doctor make an accurate diagnosis and prescribe appropriate medication or the right course of action.
Ask a family member to be present with you during the consultation if you feel they can help with answering the doctor’s questions, conveying your history more effectively or if you are not comfortable talking to the doctor alone.
Keep all your prescriptions from the last 3 months handy in case the doctor would like to see them.
