Know your family medical history

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) -

When making health decisions, Dr. John Clay believes it is important to know your family medical history.

It is a vital component to the medical history and affects doctor's decision-making when treating patients.

Many patients (particularly young people) do not know the medical problems their parents, grandparents and siblings have.

The Thanksgiving holiday is the perfect time to discuss this topic as you gather your family together at the dinner table.
