Medical Paperwork Matters: A Medical Icebreaker

Medical paperwork matters.  We can feel so annoyed each time we are asked to complete or update forms prior to a doctor visit, but it is so necessary and in our best interest!  Think of medical questionnaires and forms as medical icebreakers – a quick way to get to know each other or catch-up with one another.

Complete, accurate and up-to-date information is a turnkey to a productive visit.  Medical history, Medications, Marital status, Diet, Lifestyle, Insurance, Address, Telephone number and other factors change from time to time.  And those changes may affect your medical condition and/or the medical services needed. It is vitally important to communicate all changes to your doctor(s) and their patient business service team.

Dr. Mandel Sher and Center for Cough team begin New Patient visits by thanking patients for completing their paperwork. This acknowledgement lets Center for Cough patients know that Dr. Sher has received and reviewed the information, and will use it to launch their visit. Contact Dr. Mandel Sher: 727-393-8067.

The Center for Cough Patient Services representatives greet established cough patients by asking them to provide updated information since the last visit. A recent acute illness or change in medication may hold the keys to unraveling today’s cough visit.

Information captured in paperwork is a medical icebreaker. It enables Dr. Sher and the Center for Cough team to quickly come-up-to-speed on each patient’s current and past medical situations and determine the roadmap for the visit. This launch helps make each visit  productive. Cough patients leave an appointment with an accurate evaluation and customized treatment plan.   

Dr. Mandel Sher is a Cough expert.  Dr. Sher’s and Center for Cough team’s approach to helping cough patients achieve REMARKABLE COUGH RESOLUTION is rooted in listening to the patient.  As an expert, Dr. Sher is attuned to what to listen for and will often hear something in a patient’s medical narrative or read something in new patient paperwork that may unravel an unexplained cough.
