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.

We were seen by the provider for a complex medical issue. The provider did a fantastic job helping us understand the issue and ordering tests and steps to lead to a diagnosis so the issue can be addressed by specialists in the cancer center.

medical assistant did not tell me I would have to wait almost 1 hour before seeing doctor nor check it with me to see if I was OK. Medical assistant did not tell me my weight after asking for it. Did not get an office visit summary at end of appointment.
