What Do You Ask Your Doctors When Interviewing Them?
Posted 25 August 2012 - 05:28 AM
What questions would you recommend I ask when I interview new doctors? Here's what I have so far:
1) What is your experience with Celiac Disease?
2) What is your experience with auto-immune disorders?
3) What is your view on homeopathic remedies? (which is important to me)
4) What is your view on nutrition-focused medicine? (which will likely get me fluff answers, but that really is the key for me)
My nutritionist (best money ever spent!) has significant experience with Celiac Disease, so that's been helpful, but she can't advise on the other things - particularly the rashes I have (not the Celiac kind, but likely auto-immune in nature.)

If your doctor got you tested for celiacs and suggested that as a possible cause for your problems, then that doctor is already better than any I've ever seen. Part of your treatment will be self-study, and exploring on your own, and that goes for any disease. You will have a better understanding of your body than any doctor ever will.
Anyway, my advice is to stick with the doctor you have now, explore resources on your own, and take information to her/him that you find. At least she/he's willing to give you tests when you ask for them.
