I don’t know about you, but I often find myself at difficulties when I am trying to recall everything my doctor talks to me about during a visit. Sometimes, I have more than one doctor’s appointment in one day. How about you? Do you recall everything, or would it be helpful if you could record your doctor visits?
You may be relieved to know the following:
♦ Patients are using recordings of their doctor visits to aid them in recalling important details discussed during their health visits.
♦ Some patients are recording their visits without the doctor’s knowledge.

When must you get permission from everyone involved before recording? Use this link to find out the recording laws in your state:
