Many of us jot down notes with questions and issues we’d like to discuss with our doctors during our appointments. It helps us arrive prepared and get the most of our time with our HCP. During our appointments, our doctors also make notes in our files. This month we wondered how many of us have requested a copy of our medical notes. We also wanted to know why you have or haven’t, and how often you make that request. Here’s what you had to say . . . .
- Mike filled us in on the Open Notes movement and his request for access to his endo’s notes. (He’s included a great Seinfeld reference too!)
- Kelley explains what prompted her to request her medical notes and why it was helpful.
- Stephen admits he’d never thought about asking for his medical notes and discusses his idea for putting together notes of his own.
