Seeing your family doctor on a regular basis following following your car accident is a MUST.

There's no question about it.

But do you follow a method to improve the odds of your doctor properly recording what you tell them ?

Have you considered a formula of any kind to ensure that you convey your accident related difficulties to your doctor in a manner which will help them make clinical notes which accurately reflect your problems ?

If not, I suggest you STOP and give this some thought.

Why?

Well, I'll let you in on a secret. Most family physicans in British Columbia are quite busy. That's the nature of the beast.

Picture this. You go to see your doctor to seek treatment for your accident injuries. And your description of your difficulties is all over the map.

Is this going to have an impact on the quality of the clincial notes your doctor is able to take? What do you think?

Alright, so I've identified a problem for you. But do I have anything to offer in terms of a solution ?

Yes I do.

Follow a plan, formula, system ( whatever you want to call it) when you see your family doctor.

The one I recommend is simple. It's called the "HEAD to TOE.

It's simple yet effective .

Here's how it works.  When you go in to see your doctor, think of your body as a big CHECKLIST.

Start at the top of your head and work down to the tips of your toes. Tell your doctor everything that's bother you in that order.

If you have anything questions regarding the HEAD to System. Or want to discuss this issue further simply give me a call.
