Still feeling uneasy?
If you have tried to talk about these subjects with your physician but still feel uncomfortable, Dr. Kerr says it’s a great idea to email your doctor in advance of your next appointment to explain your situation, and provide the details of any of your issues as outlined above. Or, if you are too shy to discuss a topic face-to-face, write the information down on paper and bring that with you to the office. As a last resort, looking for a new family doctor might be the next step. A relaxed patient-doctor relationship, teamed with honest communication, truly is the best medicine.
