Tips for a Successful Visit at Your Pakenham Medical Clinic
You may not have thought about it before, but there are steps you can take to make your visit at Pakenham Medical Clinic more successful and to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible. Though our staff will always work with every patient to guarantee a successful visit, these tips can help make for an even better experience.
First and foremost, start by preparing what you want to talk about with your doctor. If you’re coming for an exam, think about what you want to discuss. For example, you might have been having issues with fatigue, or you might want to discuss a weight loss plan. If you’re coming in for a particular problem, then it may be wise to make a symptom list so no symptoms go missed in your visit with your doctor at Pakenham Medical Clinic. It’s also a good idea to write down all the medications that you’re taking at home, before coming in. That way you can’t forget anything, and you’re not committing it all to memory before relaying this information to medical staff.
Remember to be honest, not only about how you’re feeling but also about your lifestyle and any other information your doctor needs to know. Having a full picture is essential for the physician to make an informed decision about your health. You may not want to tell your doctor about the fact that you are a smoker, but this could be vital information for them to know. At Pakenham Medical Clinic, we offer appointments seven days a week and bulk billing to make things more convenient for you.
