What kind of patient am I?

I am the kind of patient who:

  • Doesn't want to waste the doctors time
  • Forgets what the doctor said at the appointment
  • Find's making an appointment time consuming and off putting (due to having to call at a certain time)
  • Sometimes google's things but doesn't trust what it says
  • Trusts doctors advice
  • Feels nervous in the appointment room
  • Avoids hospitals
  • Scared of needles (although this is improving over time)
  • Doesn't understand medical terminology - and doesn't have the confidence to ask for a more simple explanation
  • Nervous about answering medical questions 'wrong'
  • Forgets detail about medical history
