Last week’s #patientchat was hosted by patient activist Mark-John Clifford on the topic of speaking up at your doctor’s visit. We started off with a few basic questions, but the conversation expanded into issues of trust, doctor-patient partnership and some critical tips from #epatient participants on how to be more organized and speak up at your doctor’s visit.
