A suggestion for doctors

A lot of people have trouble talking to doctors. A lot of people have trouble raising concerns unless they’re explicitly invited to do so.

It can be helpful to ask at the end of a conversation something like “is there anything else you wanted to talk about?” or “Are you experiencing any other symptoms?”

That can make it more possible for people to say things.

Also please assume we are panicked and miserable unless you get confirmation to the contrary

What would making that assumption look like? What should a doctor who is assuming that do?
