Most patients tell me that other doctors take patient history in a different way. I appreciate that you understand my method of patient care. I have helped thousands of patients. To help you, I need to understand your symptoms. I can get information from you in two ways:
I ask you about your symptoms; you may reply in a hurry to save my time. I may misunderstand your answers. So, I may not get the comprehensive information.
You take your own time and write your symptoms in your own words; as you are not rushed, I will get more accurate picture of your medical problems.
Even during follow-ups, I will ask you to write your symptoms and your medications. I want you to write your medications rather than my nurse copying the information from the chart because you may be taking medications differently than what we prescribed.
