Audio-recording your office medical appointments allows you to take notes at your own pace in the comfort of your home. These notes will serve you well before going to future appointments and will obviate the need to contact the office later to ask about things for which you already have the answers. I always ask permission and then start recording a Voice Memo on my iPhone. While recording, I refer to my questions that I have on the Notes app. This is part of being a vigilant patient and builds medical self-efficacy.
