Trials and Tribulations of Having a Doctor’s Appointment

Going to a doctor today can be like going to a foreign country, where you feel like you need a translator to determine exactly what the doctor is talking about!

Often, the patient’s need to understand what is being said and explained gets overlooked or lost.

This year, instead of making goals about what you want to accomplish and then later in the year feeling bad if you do not reach these goals, how about recognizing what you have accomplished during the past year and seeing if you can surpass these grateful moments next year?
