August is “Talk To Your Doctor” Month. Clear and honest communication between you and your physician can help you both make smart choices about your health. It’s important to be honest and upfront about your symptoms even if you feel embarrassed or shy. Have an open dialogue with your doctor — ask questions to make sure you understand your diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.

For example, it is recommended to make a list of symptoms and/or questions for your provider before your appointment in order to ensure you do not forget to address everything you want to have covered.
