If you’re like me, it’s hard to remember everything a doctor says during a visit. Sometimes I take notes but usually I’m concentrating so hard on what they say that I forget to. Once I’m home, I can barely remember all the instructions. Even written information can be confusing.
That’s where video recording your doctor visits could come in handy. If you have a smart phone, you can video the doctor while they’re explaining the treatment or medication. It’s best to get their permission first and make sure they know you’re recording. The flip side is some doctors are recording patient visits themselves so people can watch the video at home. I found a good article on this topic at Stat News.
