Should you bring someone with you to your next doctor’s appointment? If you’re asking, the answer is yes. If you’re asked, how do you be the best companion? Prep in advance, listen, record and ask questions. Know why you’re going. That means two things: What does the person want to accomplish during the appointment? And… Why do they want you to accompany them? If you’re asked, say yes. Going to the doctor with someone is a gift. Published on Health Hats on May 11, 2013.
