Dancing with Doctors

By Kelley Luckstein

Why do we often feel scared, rushed, and powerless in the doctor's office?  Can this affect how we heal?  Why do doctors behave the way they do? How can we improve the "dance" we do with doctors?

 

The Mayo Clinic's Dr. Michael Brennan offers pointers on getting and keeping your physician's attention and reaping the greatest benefits from a visit to the doctor.  The conversation will help you understand your doctor-and how to get your doctor to understand you!
