Meg, I'm sure you have confidence in the doctor you chose and I hope you end up with a great doctor! But, I never go in and tell a doctor what to do. I never ask for medication or certain tests. I just tell the doctor how I am feeling, how it affects my day-to-day living, etc. I leave the diagnosing and dispensing of meds to him/her.
Once I have a good relationship with my doctor, and if there is something I'm wondering about, then I will discuss that with him. For example, I was questioning the possiblilty of vitamin deficiencies causing some of my problems. When I did that, he ordered the blood work and found out I was deficient in Vitamin D. So that's how I handle the doctors.
I hope this helps you. Let us know how the visit goes!
