Getting you doctor to speak English!

Many of us know Dr. Susan Leclair, professor of Laboratory Science at Univ of Mass., is the best! Now we are starting a new video series with her on PatientPower.info at our own expense. In this first in the series she explains why your doctor speaks in medicalese and how you can get them to speak to you in English. Breaking Down Patient-Doctor Language Barriers

Let me know what you think and look for more soon. Even recommend this to your doctor. They may laugh. Best Wishes, Andrew Schorr

Thanks for the video Andrew, so true and great advice :-)

You may be interested in this document from the guidelines section of the UK CLL Forum.

This was written by the UK CLL Forum to advise UK medics, I think I may send this to one or two I know

Dr. Susan Leclair continues the selfless assistance that she has provided to the CLL community for many years.

Thank you ( again )

Thank you for posting this video Andrew. I think the deafness comment is one we all recognise. One for us all, but most probably one most needed by the folk who don't know they need it.. Those yet to be diagnosed. Hope everyone here watches and takes notice, a valuable contribution to our knowing how to communicate with those we rely on to provide us with medical help.

Thanks again
