I strongly believe in the shared decision-making process. Patients should play an active role in their care and need to fully comprehend their options. I will make recommendations based on data available in the literature and my clinical judgment, but patient autonomy is paramount. The most important aspects of the patient-physician relationship are honesty and trust.
