During the visit

 

Talk to the doc

 

Show your doctor that you're all business by arriving on time for your appointment. This shows that you respect his time and that he should also value yours. Also, be kind to the good doc and follow mom's advice by showering and putting on clean underwear beforehand.

Ask questions

 

Don't be shy or embarrassed to discuss anything with your doctor or to ask any questions. His job is to make sure you're healthy, without passing judgment on you or your lifestyle. Don't feel rushed. Ask all the questions you want to ask and get the answers you need.

Pay attention

 

Address any health, diet or exercise issues that you are concerned about and take notes.

Describe your symptoms in detail

 

Provide details and don't hold anything back. You want the best diagnosis, so give the most accurate description of your s ymptoms.

Don't lie about your habits

 

Be honest about your use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs. Even if you're only an occasional smoker, tell your doctor.

Detail your sexual history

 

This is vital for your doctor in order to assess your risk for STDs and AIDS, as well as your overall health.

Mention any natural products you are taking

 

Whether they are supplements or over-the-counter drugs, natural products can interact with certain medications.

Ask for specific feedback

 

Ask for detailed and personalized information and advice, not just general feedback like "you're tired and need to get some rest."

Ask for referrals

 

Anticipate future visits to specialists and ask your doctor for referrals.

Pass the physical

 

Your physical exam should be relatively painless, but since it should involve a comprehensive blood test, prepare yourself mentally if you're squeamish about needles. You may also need shots to update your immunizations.

after the visit

 

Follow up

Feel free to call your doctor after your visit if any other health issues come up, but don't overdo it. Most doctors will expect you to come in to see them to discuss any new problems.

Request pre-scheduled appointments for regular tests you need to undergo, such as for HIV or hepatitis if you are in a high-risk group.

Continue taking any medications prescribed by your doctor and keep your prescriptions updated. Note that the doctor can't renew a prescription over the phone.
