Best to wait: The mri, while a sensitive test for all kinds of problems, has to be interpreted in the light of your medical problem(s). That correlation is best done by your doctor because he or she is most familiar with the issues. Of course, if your doctor has questions, the radiologist reading the report is always available to clarify. ...Read more

Discuss your concern: Discuss your concerns with the neurologist, cerebral palsy is more common after birth and if that was the case would have been picked in infancy and childhood.In adults you can have as complication of meningitis or encephalitis or some other CNS disease.It is unlikely that she has cerebral palsy and has not been picked uo on examination.Muscle hypertonia can be from other causes, talk to the neurolo. ...Read more

I just found out i'm pregnant, when should I schedule my first doctors appointment?

I just found out i'm pregnant, when should I schedule my first doctors appointment?

Congratulations!: Congratulations!(hopefully they are in order) from my perspective you should make it as soon as you are able; either with your primary care doc or your ob/gyn to 'confirm'..And then you will be given a more definitive schedule to follow. I'll give you a head start...Eat well; and begin a "prenatal" vitamin; drink plenty of water and try to eliminate any junk food/caffeine from your diet. The ob/gyn will go into more detail going forward. In the mean time enjoy the moment! best of luck to you! ...Read more

Why do they always make me wait to see the doctor when I make an appointment? I go on time.

Why do they always make me wait to see the doctor when I make an appointment? I go on time.

Humans: Since we talk to humans, not widgets, it is hard to always predict how long each person will take. If we go the other way, and only schedule a few patients a day, we wouldn't be able to keep the lights on. Would you want your visit to be rushed? Hopefully technology will catch up and allow patients to know when their md is running really late. ...Read more

I have a doctors appointment on Wed with a new doctor. What is done at the first appointment?

Be prepared: Take as many old records (notes, imaging, labs, etc) with you as possible, to help transition your care to the new physician. Take all your pill bottles with you as well. You will undergo a history and physical exam. The more detailed and thorough you can be, the better. http://www.cfah.org/prepared-patient/communicate-with-your-doctors/getting-the-most-out-of-doctors-appointment ...Read more

I have a headache like pain at the top of my neck it's been there for 3 days now. Should i make a doctors appointment?

Headache: Yes. Check with your physician. If pain is severe and your physician can not see you soon then consider going to an express care or urgent care facility. Most likely this is muscular or some sort of strain. However, with adequate history and physical examination a correct diagnosis and treatment may be established. Hope you feel well soon. ...Read more

It seems u have to make an appointment with your doctor to ask even the simplest of questions. What if i want to ask him something without coming in?

Use Doc's Staff: You are correct that a lot of busy doctors do not have time to answer simple questions. Be willing to call the doc's assistant, ask your question, and then wait for the answer from the office. Some docs will answer anything that way, but any complicated question that requires a medical opinion deserves to be assessed and evaluated--in the office, for best results. ...Read more
