When choosing a doctor to work with you, be organized and focused. Prepare a thorough list of questions to ask and have expectations for the answers that they might provide. Be well researched with what you think the root of your problem might be and be open-minded to the possibility of other suggestions. Ask yourself, am I comfortable working with this individual on my team? If they make unrealistic promises or grandiose claims, ask for money up front for services not yet provided or do not take the time to answer your questions thoroughly, proceed with caution. If it doesn’t “feel right” to you, it probably is not the right fit.
Just remember, the only way to truly fail is to quit. Keep looking for answers, they are out there.
