Taking a medical history is asking for important information for a patient’s treatment. The word comes from the Greek “anamnêsis” and means memory. The information obtained during the interview is of utmost importance in order to assess the benefits and risks of treatment on an individual basis. Trust is a basic prerequisite for a correct medical history, as it is imperative to ask for personal information, such as pregnancy.
A careful medical history must not omit important information that, for example, affects the risk of thrombosis (for example, cigarette smoking or hormonal contraceptives). In order not to forget anything and to give you the time to remember all the details, the anamnesis at CenterPlast is supplemented with a questionnaire.
