How should I prepare for an appointment to diagnose rhinitis?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner
Since your diagnosis of rhinitis is diagnosed by your doctor based upon your symptoms and medical history, you should review this information before your appointment. Making detailed lists about symptoms (What triggers them? How long do they last?), medications you take, and major personal information will help you be prepared for your doctor's questions. Writing down questions of your own is a good idea as well. If you are concerned about how to prepare for your appointment to diagnose rhinitis, you can ask for preparation tips when you make your appointment.
