Borrow or buy a mini voice recorder to bring with you when you visit the Doctor. This way you can remember what was said in instructions to you about medications, tests and anything else you will forget as soon as you leave the doctors office. You will be able to play it back as many times as you need.

Schedule doctor's appointments for first morning appointment. You will not have to wait as long and you won't get a sleepy doctor right after lunch.
Anytime when going to the doctor for a routine checkup like a blood pressure check or allergy shot make sure the office is open during the holidays.
At Christmas time we had many patients say they came in the evening expecting to come in as always and get the service. We close early during the holidays. We are closed all day on Good Friday.
So the rule of thumb would be if there is a question on other schedules check with your doctor too.
