Stating What You Expect From the Visit?

At the moment, it may be difficult for you to state exactly what you expect the doctor to do about your medical condition, but it may be helpful later if you give some thought to this now. Use the PACE Guide Sheet you printed earlier to write down any thoughts you have about what you hope or think the doctor might do for you, for example prescribe a medication, order a test, suggest surgery.
