Studies show that people who communicate with their doctors and understand health care-related instructions make fewer mistakes when they take their medicine or prepare for a medical procedure.

How to get well sooner or be able to better manage a chronic health condition? Here are 3 questions to ask during each doctor visit:

1. What is my main problem?
2. What do I need to do?
3. Why is it important for me to do this?

Ask Me 3 is a patient education program designed to promote communication between health care providers and patients in order to improve health outcomes.
