For anyone who doesn’t already know, the title of this post is Primary Care Provider Follow-Up (in its elongated form πŸ˜‚)

It went well! My condition stable πŸ‘πŸ½ It was a chance to catch up with my doctor πŸ˜‚ For anyone who knows me, I’m chatty πŸ˜‚ And I chatted with her 😁

In πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ checklist, I talked all about involving a checklist in your care… I did πŸ˜‚ Before my appointment I messaged my checklist over to my PCP. At the appointment today, I love how she printed out the list and we followed/addressed EVERY point on the list! I felt genuinely involved in my care, not in the least disregarded! πŸ‘πŸ½

Most of the items on my list was preventive. πŸ€” That’s another important aspect to your care. You want it to anticipate potential problems, not just react to them!

Not much may have happened (and that’s a good thing!) but I feel like it strengthened our communication as provider and patient! πŸ‘πŸ½

My aim with these kinds of posts is to encourage better and more efficient communication (and self-advocacy too!). I don’t want to just say these things, but also employ them in MY care! πŸ€—
