Our ability to draw effective conclusions about your present state of health and how to improve it depends, to a significant extent, on your ability to respond thoughtfully and accurately to both these written questions and those posed by the clinician during your consultations. Health issues are usually influenced by many factors. Accurately assessing all the factors and comprehensively managing them is the best way to deal with these health challenges.
