Assertive Patient: Have A Story To Tell?
The NPR Health Blog is asking for your questions about your own personal experiences as a patient. For example:
-- Have you ever gone to your doctor and asked for a medication after seeing an advertisement on television? Did that turn out well? Did that turn out badly?
-- Do you feel like you need to be aggressive with your doctors because it's difficult to get the attention you need from the medical system?
-- Have you ever been misdiagnosed by a doctor in a way that has changed your approach to the medical system?
-- Have you ever become aware of a disorder that you suffer from by watching a public service announcement that educated you about a disease?
-- Do you spend a lot of time on the internet looking at health information and researching medical issues that you feel are related to you?
