LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – How much time do I have? That's an important question to ask your doctor when it comes to understanding how long that appointment is, but that's just part of what you need to plan, if you want to get your money's worth at the doctor's office.
"And if you go to the doctor without a plan, like a list of questions or concerns that you have, then you're not likely to get everything answered that you needed to ask when you came to the doctor," said Ray Smith, M.D., who practices family medicine at Covenant.
Dr. Smith adds another important list for the doctor is your list of medications, including over the counter drugs, herbal remedies and vitamins.
