Take Note


The writing is on the examination-room wall: Reading your doctor’s notes can help you stay healthy. Harvard researchers found that people who accessed their doctor’s notes after appointments took better care of them selves and were more likely to take meds as prescribed. Physician visits tend to put people on edge, says study author Janice Walker, so it’s easy to forget key details. At the start of your visit, tell your doctor you’ll want a copy of his notes.
