Hi Rygon,

How would you feel about splitting this up into three different submissions as I think all can be excellent subjects:

1. What questions should a patient ask their doctor when first diagnosed?

2. What questions should a patient ask their doctor when a new medication for Crohn's disease is prescribed.

3. What should a patient do to prepare for an appointment to get the most out of the visit?
