How to Make a List of Questions for Your Doctor

Why Ask Questions?

Asking questions helps you understand your health better and feel more confident.

Before Your Visit

Think about what you want to know and write down your questions.

What to Ask About

Ask about your health, any treatments, or things you're curious about.

Be Specific

Write down exactly what you want to know so you don't forget.

Take your list with you to your doctor's appointment.

Bring Your List

If you're not sure what to ask, ask your parents or a grown-up for ideas.

Ask for Help

During Your Visit

Don't be shy—ask your questions and listen carefully to the answers.

Ask Follow-Up Questions

If you don't understand something, ask the doctor to explain it in a different way.

Thank your doctor for answering your questions and helping you understand your health better.
