6/9/2020 is National Call your Doctor Day

National Call Your Doctor Day is a reminder to take a moment out of your busy day to put your health first. Feeling nervous or uncomfortable about going is natural but do not let that stop you from taking care of yourself. Think of your doctor as your partner in managing your health and take the time to find a provider who makes you feel comfortable.  You are your own best health advocate. Be confident and take charge of scheduling your appointment and by being prepared for your visit. Take a list of questions.  This will enable you to receive a more personalized plan to manage your health.  If you are not happy with your visit, getting a second opinion is always an option.  It is also helpful to keep track of any changes in your body. If anything has persisted for longer than 2 weeks, bring this to your doctor’s attention.
