Healthy communications with your doctor


Heath care costs soar when patients don’t do what they’re told. Conative MOs forecast what patients will/won’t do.

If your conative MO is an 8 or more in Fact Finder, tell your doctor it isn’t personal & go get the other opinions.

If your conative MO is resist Fact Finder, ask your doctor for the 3 things you most need to know. Be polite & just take all the written stuff.

If your conative MO is to Facilitate, beware of telling health care professionals what you think they want to hear.  

If your conative MO is more than 8 in Follow Thru tell your doctor how long it will take you to get better and the regimen you’ll follow to do it.

If your conative MO is Quick Start w/ resist Implementor, tell your doctor you need competitive physical therapy with  lots of protective padding.

 If your conative MO is a combo of Fact Finder/Quick Start tell your doc not to give  you the same old routine. Give you data on new solutions.

Next time you see your doctor, ask if s/he wants to know what makes you tick.
