Doctor-Patient Communication Quiz

You and your doctor are partners, working together for your optimal health. That's why it's important to find a doctor you feel comfortable with, someone who listens to your questions, and takes the time to ask his or her own. Find out more about doctor-patient relations by taking this quiz.

1. Your doctor knows which medicines you're taking, so you don't need to bother reminding him or her.
2. If you wear glasses or hearing aids, don't forget to bring them with you to the doctor's office.
3. A friend or relative who comes with you to the office must stay in the waiting room during your exam.
4. It's not the doctor's business to know about your personal life, so he or she shouldn't ask you about anything other than health matters.
5. It's OK to fudge the truth about your smoking or dieting when talking with your doctor.
6. Your doctor has only a limited time for you, so limit your questions.
7. You can find out more about your particular health condition by reading brochures your doctor has.
8. Problems with depression or memory are a normal part of aging and don't merit concern by your doctor.
