A Health Guide for Every Decade of Your Life

Friday, September 30th, 2011

One of our favorite experts, Marie Savard, M.D., Medical Contributor to “Good Morning America” and the author most recently of “Ask Dr. Marie,” has given us a comprehensive checklist to help you stay as healthy as possible and catch any problems early. In addition to recommending tests and immunizations, Dr. Marie urges you to request copies of all your own test results. She is a big proponent of patients being actively involved in their own care. “Read your results carefully,” she says. “Doctors are not infallible and you may catch something that was missed. Also, the records are not all that hard to understand.”
