When You Visit Your Doctor

We know how helpful it is to have "when you visit your doctor" questions handy at your medical appointments. Here at Harvard Health Publications we have prepared these additional sets of questions you can print out and take with you so you'll know what to discuss with your doctor. Here are some of the new topics available to help you partner with your doctor to get the best medical care: Parkinson’s disease, cataracts, gallstones, pregnancy, and many more.
