First they can write down all their most important symptoms and questions before they get to the surgery. They can, therefore, be absolutely sure that they tell the doctor everything they wanted to say to him. They can also be positive that they ask all the questions they want to.

Secondly, they can write down all the advice and information they are given by the doctor, such as when they've got to go back to the surgery, how often the pills they are given have to be taken, what hospital tests are necessary, what foods need to be avoided, what side effects the tablets might produce and so on. All of this is important information, especially as the consequences of taking some modern drugs in the wrong way can. be disastrous.

If you're sensible, you'll limit the information you take with you to half a page or so. But your doctor won't mind you doing this. Indeed, he'll be enthusiastic. After all, you'll be helping him to be a better job.
