How to Stay on Top of Your Health

Patients must establish lines of communication with their doctors and health care providers to understand what is covered and what tests or treatment is needed.” Dr. Davis encourages his patients to be their own health advocates. “To advocate for your health, you have to do the research. Start with doing research and possibly keeping a medical diary of your medications and which doctors you see.”
