The medical visit is becoming shorter and shorter; patients need to be prepared, concise and truthful to receive the best, most individualized care.

Communication in the healthcare visit goes both way - provider to patient and patient to provider. Learn the importance, the skills, and a little insider knowledge on how to best present your health, illness, concerns and requests in each health care visit.
