Your doctor will:
- Request detailed information about your symptoms,
- Take a medical history of your current and past ailments,
- Perform a thorough physical examination.
It’s not uncommon to have questions or doubts, which we will encourage you to clarify before you leave the clinic.
While certain diagnostic tests such as blood tests or imaging tests may be ordered to confirm your diagnosis. Your doctor will take time to explain the options for the possible treatments.
After reviewing any diagnostic results, your doctor will recommend appropriate treatment.
