WHAT TO ASK Your Doc

Don't know what your risk factors are if you take HRT? Confused about what to ask your doctor? Do you feel too rushed at the doctor's office to get the information you need? One-third of patients leave a physician's office without getting important questions answered. Take Control of Your Menopausal Symptoms by using a confidential HRT questionnaire for a more enlightened discussion with your doctor. Talk to Your Doc facilitates communication between patients and health care providers.
