taking your vitals and doing the general

enquiries and some of the conversations

after that normally they will ask you so

the doctor's office hi my name is Maggie

p.m. hi my name is Maggie I have an

appointment with dr. who at 4 p.m. okay

doctor who will be right with you please

take a seat on the couch please take a

seat in the bathing area and then if the

nurse come out and say Maggie doctor who

is ready for you Maggie

doctor who is ready for you so you'll go

in with the nurse go into the doctor's

office and start your consultation

before the doctors come in normally the

nurses will take your temperature your

blood pressure weigh you and do some

general increase first and if the nurse

ask you your name and birthdate have

that ready my name is Maggie and my

birthday is August 17th 1991 and then

the nurse will be taking your

temperature they will take your blood

pressure with a blood pressure cuff

they'll also wait you after that the

nurses will go on and ask you a couple

of general questions for example miss

Maggie are you on any medication miss

Maggie are you on any medication if you

are taking any medicines help let them

know if you are not just answer now do

you have any allergies do you have any

allergies yes I am allergic to aspirin

yes I am allergic to Kiwi if you don't

have any allergies tell them no I don't

have any allergies no I don't have

the allergies are you sexually active

are you sexually active meaning that if

they can go out and you sort of sexually

related disease just let them know yes

or no and after this couple of general

increase the nurse will be telling you

okay please wait here for a little bit

the doctor will be right with you after

the doctor come in you'll probably greet

you what brings you here today what

brings you here today or what's the

problem and then you can tell the doctor

what's wrong and what's bothering you so

for common sickness injuries or diseases

I would like to do another video after

this one so stay tuned for that video

and after you tell the doctor what was

wrong he'll probably ask you do you have

a family history of this do you have a

family history of this this might be

genetic if you do tell them yes my mom

also has diabetes or no nobody in my

family has had that nobody has that in

my family do you smoke are you a smoker

meaning that you smoke on the regular

are you a smoker and also they'll

probably ask you do you drink alcohol do

you drink alcohol or do you consume

alcohol do you drink they all mean the

same thing do you drink alcohol on the

regular another questions that come up

regularly is how long has this been

going on how long has this been going on

three months two weeks three days does

it hurt when I price here does it hurt

when I press here if it hurts tell them

yes it does hurt if the doctor is not

sure about your symptoms and they want

to keep you overnight they'll probably

tell you we need to run some tests and I

like to keep you here overnight if you

don't have anything severe the doctor

will probably write you a prescription

but don't ask the doctor for your

medicine a lot of times you have to go

to a pharmacy to talk to a pharmacist to

get your prescription so that completes

your entire process for

your doctor's visit and sometimes

they'll probably ask you for another

checkup so don't forget to make that

appointment to your follow-up that is

pretty much it for today's video I hope

you enjoy it and stay tuned for the

common sickness and injuries and

diseases and like this video share it

with your friends and family and

subscribe to my channel and I will see

you in the next video bye
