Do Your Research Prior to Your Appointment
Know what’s out there prior to your examination. There is a tremendous amount of information available, and if you don’t know the full list of birth control options that are available, you might only hear about the most popular ones from your OB-GYN. We appreciate it when you conduct a little homework before your visit.
Prepare Some Questions
Too often patients get stage fright when their feet are in the stirrups. But because they need to get as much information as they can from their OB-GYN Montgomery County, their lives actually do depend on it. Prepare a list of inquiries about anything and everything and bring along something to take notes with.
