9 Questions Your Doctor Wishes You’d Ask

A visit to your doctor will, in many cases, simply result in you leaving the office with a prescription or two, which will rarely solve your health problem. Most doctor visits result in "solutions" that only suppress your symptoms, without addressing the underlying cause of disease. A new list of questions to ask your doctor from TIME can help on the occasion you MUST see a doctor, however, often your best care can come from yourself. Their list is:

1. “What are the different treatment options?”
2. “What outcome should I expect?”
3. “Do we have to do this now, or can we revisit it later?”
4. “Is there anything I can do on my own to improve my condition?”
5. “What are the side effects?”
6. “How will I hear about my test results?”
7. “How much will this cost me?”
8. “Should I get a second opinion?”
9. “What questions haven’t I asked that I should have?”

TAKE CONTROL: As previously stated, most doctor visits result in drug and surgical “solutions” that only treat your symptoms and often cause other side effects and problems. Examples of when you may be better off avoiding your doctor include screenings like mammograms and PSA tests, health conditions like high cholesterol, colds and the flu, and when seeking sound nutritional advice. Ultimately, the more you take responsibility for your own health -- in the form of nurturing your body to prevent disease -- the less you need to rely on the "disease care" that passes for health care in the United States.
