Why patients need to learn to ask the right questions !

This article appeared in the New Indian Express.

" Dr. Aniruddha Malpani, Medical Director, HELP—Health Education Library for People, Mumbai, explains, “The only stupid question is the one you did not ask. Asking appropriate questions about your treatment and medicines will help you to acquire knowledge and will also keep the doctors and hospital staff on their toes.” Malpani says that patients must never take any medicine without asking: what it is, why it is used and what its side-effects are. “Remember, there are lots of patients and your physician sees many everyday,” he says."
