What your doctor doesn't have time to tell you

Do you sometimes feel as if going to a doctor's office is like going through a revolving door: in, swoosh-blur, out? You fight traffic to get there, wait a while in the waiting room, wait a while in the exam room, get seen, get dressed and get out. But once you've gone, you realize you're missing something -- maybe a small piece of helpful information. Clic
here to see some insider tips from medical specialists who tell you what your doctor doesn't have time to tell you in that all-too-brief appointment. (Hey, Dr. Bob, I'm not talking about YOU here! tg)
