The Secret Sauce to Getting In and Out of the Doctor’s Office and not waste time.


Case Study: A caregiver who organized her life

When Nancy had to take her mom to the doctor, it seemed like that’s all she was doing, going from one doctor to another.

Nancy had to figure out a way to get mom to the doctor without either taking off work, taking time away from her family, especially her husband.

It seemed like every single office visit ended in another office visit or referral to a specialist for a trip to the drugstore or a trip to physical therapy.

She implemented the following 3 steps which cut down on a tremendous amount of time…

The Magic 3 Steps

1) Nancy finally started asking questions about these treatment plans and did they really make a difference in her mom’s life and what other alternatives there were.

2) She also started studying her mom’s chronic diseases so she could have a good conversation with the physicians before she went on the office visit. Now she knew what to expect and learn what was going to help and what was a waste of time.

3) She also learned from the Patient Best Medical History Book how to set a doctor’s appointment so she was in and out with no time to waste.

And Extra Option…

She also took another step in her mother’s care. She called 3 different pharmacies and sat down with each pharmacist and went over the medications her mom was on and what the side effects were. She learned all of this and used the checklist guide in the Patient Best Medical History Book to ask all the questions before she saw these pharmacists.



About the Author

Do you feel frustrated with your medical care? Do doctors spend 5 minutes with you, push you out of the office, with you wondering what's going to happen? Does your insurance deny paying? You're not alone. I'm frustrated, too. This is a growing trend in healthcare. Having seen pre-insurance medicine (yes, my dad was an old country doctor), I grew up watching him spend time with his patients, giving them the best care he had to offer. I saw families trust him to help them through hospitalizations and the next crisis. As a patient advocate, my job is to see that you get the right diagnosis, the right treatment plans, and the right supplies and education to make good decisions about your health. More importantly, I will teach you the tricks of the healthcare trade. We need more healthcare consumer protection, especially for chronic illnesses like diabetes. This is what I am passionate about. I make it happen every day with thousands of patients who now know what I know about beating the healthcare system and getting the best patient care...Patient Best.
