Whether you're newly diagnosed with polycythemia vera or have been undergoing treatment for some time, you probably have questions for your doctor and other members of your care team.

You may find it helpful to bring a loved one with you to your doctor's visits for support and to take notes and ask follow-up questions. It's a good idea to prepare questions you'd like to ask when you visit your doctor. You can also record your conversations with your doctor and listen more closely when you get home.
