No one goes to the doctor for fun. Your Health, Your Choice offers the tools to empower you to effectively participate in your own health care. As medical care has become more specialized, it is increasingly important to be confident and make informed choices in your health care. The premise of this book is that actively collaborating with your doctor in making health care decisions improves your health care outcome and quality of life, and lowers the cost of health care. This book covers topics such as benefits of participating assertively in making health care decisions and common pitfalls in making these decisions, how to prepare when you go to the doctor, how to avoid unnecessary care, reliable sources of health information, how to choose your doctor and where to get your health care. It also includes information on preparing advance directives, and more. The concepts presented are supported by medical evidence and illustrated by case anecdotes.
