Dear Doctor:

You don’t have to remember me from last time, but before you open the exam room door, take 5 MINUTES to go over my chart and know:

  1. The reason for my last visit.
  2. The results of any tests you ordered during my last visit.
  3. What those results might mean.
  4. Any tests you ordered but have yet to receive results for.
  5. Any ongoing symptoms I have been suffering.
