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…

i’m not sure this goes along exactly with the conversation, but doctors who explain everything they’re going to do before they do it and check that you’re okay/ready for them to do it, step by step, are the best!
