February is National Heart Month.
Take Action.
Sometimes visiting the doctor can be nerve-racking. Be prepared with these tips to help you talk to your healthcare provider about your heart health. Always ask for what you need. Don’t be afraid to write out your questions ahead of time so you don’t forget anything. Be open when sharing information about your health history. Your provider can make the best recommendations for you if s/he has all your information. Make sure you understand what you have been told. Repeat back to your provider what you heard to ensure it is what they meant. Being prepared for your visits can take away the anxiety and make the visit go smoothly.
