How do I get ready for my doctor’s appointment?

[Translate to English:] Un patient discute avec un professionnel de la santé.
  • Ask another adult or relative to come with you to your appointments and tests. This person can give you emotional support and help you by taking notes.

  • Think about any concerns you have, information you need, or expectations about your health that you want to discuss at the appointment and make a list of them in order of importance.

  • Bring a notebook so that you can write down your questions as soon as they come to mind.

  • Make sure you bring your valid health insurance card and your hospital card.

  • Bring an up-to-date list of your usual medications and any natural products that you take as well as a list of your allergies. Ask your pharmacist for these lists.

  • Work together with your health professionals.
