The PACE System

Welcome to communicating with your doctor. The PACE System is the result of years of research with patients and doctors. I can assure you that most doctors are very happy when their patients:
  • Are prepared for their visit
  • State their concerns clearly and honestly
  • Provide a complete description of their medical condition
  • Ask questions about their illness and its treatment
  • Express concerns or problems with prescribed treatments

We hope this information will help you to master all of these communication skills and have more satisfying visits with doctors.
