A lot of times, a trip to the doctor's office can be rather hurried.
Questions may not always get answered, or asked for that matter.
Sara Fontenot, a national speaker on health law, will provide a free presentation with information on how and what you should be asking your physician.
The presentation is part of Citizens Medical Center's HealthWise, a community education service, and will be at 6 p.m. on Aug. 1.
Doctors and nurses are full of useful information that many patients may not know about, either because they don't ask or they don't know how to ask.
Fontenot's focus will be on getting the most out of each visit in order to keep on top of changes in health care and remain in the best health.
