Episode Description

This episode features a geriatric physician discussing how to get the most out of your health care visits. Dr. Eric Rosenberg, once awarded “One of the Nation’s Top Primary Care Physicians, will share his recommendations on making the most of visits with your physician, especially addressing seniors' concerns about chronic conditions, covering how to plan for the visit, communicating sensitive subjects, and questions about confidentiality and confiding in family members. We will review several different hypothetical cases and mock patients, what questions to raise, and what to do before, during, and after the visit. This is worthwhile medical advice, shared by a physician with 33 years of primary care practice and co-founder of Connecticut’s largest primary care group. A program not to be missed.
