  5. Tell him to use non-medical terms. Using layman’s terms is hard in the doctor community. Remind us.

  6. He does not care about your personal life problems and he probably has heard and seen more misery than you. So have some mercy on his soul too.

  7. Remember to follow up. Understand whether there is a need of follow up visit or not and follow through.

  9. Speak up yourself instead of letting your parent or sibling do the talking. A doctor wants to have a first account of the problem of the patient.

  10. Medicines are not candies for all to have. Do not self-prescribe or give others your prescribed medicine. A medicine that works for you might not be suitable for someone else. Share a chocolate instead.
