Usually the information comes in stages.... First they get a lot of info from you and do a lot of tests. Once they have all of that, they make an action plan for you and you start down some type of a path. That is the stage when you need to make a bunch of decisions and do some research.
1) get a notebook for This process and start writing all the questions that pop in your mind so you can ask the doctor during your appt.
2) during the appointment have your partner or yourself take notes. You will forget a lot afterwards.
3) use the same notebook throughout.
4) Don't feel obligated to just see the one clinic. After being dicked around with a few clinics, I made an appointment with 3 diff doctors at the top clinics near me and interviewed the doctors to make sure it was a good fit. For me, the doctor I chose was the clear winner after that one appointment. The nice thing was that the appointments were all within a 2 week time period so I got a good sense of each doctor and what action plan was for me.
Good luck to you and keep us posted.
