Q’s before surgery
Always clarify the problems that you need to treat.
Know the time pressure for this procedure.
Is the surgeon a “high volume” surgeon.
What are the alternatives?
How many complications are there? How many have you seen?
How often does the actual surgeon visit after surgery?
Q’s before taking psychological medications
What are the side-effects of this medication? (don’t be satisfied with 3 or 4)

Remind the doctor about any strong history of the past when symptoms began (like relative’s death, rape etc.). These occurrences generally alter all testing.
