  1. Many patients don't listen carefully, or they listen but don't really understand what the doctor is telling them. To me, the biggest communication problem is a patient's tendency not to ask questions if he/she doesn't understand what the doctor means.

  2. Problematic factors may include:

    Patient doesn't want to hear the doctor's diagnosis

    Patient's language skills are inadequate to understand

    Patient may be too upset to understand or remember what the doctor said. I know many people who take another person with them when they see a doctor so that they both have a chance to understand and remember.
