Prairie Doc Perspective Week of July 16th, 2023
“Getting the Most Out of Your Healthcare”
By Samantha Darnall-Werlinger, MD
As a patient, it can be challenging to navigate the healthcare system. This can lead to frustration and disappointment in the system itself. My intent with this article is to be both informative and alleviate some angst associated with seeking medical care.
This is just the beginning. Next week, I’ll go over what happens behind the scenes after your visit.
