What to Expect?

Here is a checklist that can help you prepare before your appointment with our TCM physician

  • Compile all your documents to bring during your visit:
    • Copies of any tests, x-rays, or medical histories relating to your medical problem.
    • A list of all current medications taken on a regular basis, including over-the-counter and herbal medications.
  • Review any special directions from your doctor about diet or medication restrictions prior to your appointment.

 

During Your Appointment

To make the most of your appointment, prepare a list of questions and remember to express your concerns to your TCM physician.

 

Not sure what to ask?

Here are some examples of questions to ask your doctor:

About Your Symptoms or Diagnosis

  • What is the disease or condition?
  • How serious is my disease or condition and how will it affect my home and work life?
  • What is the short-term and long-term prognosis for my disease or condition?
  • What caused the disease or condition?

About Your Treatment

  • What are my treatment options?
  • How long will the treatment take?
  • What is the cost of the treatment?
  • Which treatment is most common for my disease or condition?
  • What side effects can I expect?

 

If You Need Further Investigations 

Our TCM physician will refer you for further investigation when needed. Some tests needed to be done before we can proceed with your TCM management.
