At medical office appointments, ask questions about anything you want to understand better. If you have any type of apprehension about a recommended treatment, ask questions that will allow you to make informed decisions. Before undergoing any invasive procedure, ask if there is a good alternative. Discuss risks related to any procedure. A good doctor will want to answer your questions unless you have trouble tracking and keep asking the same question, in which case, you need to record the session. Be assertive and also very respectful.
