I believe patient care involves educating patients about their conditions. By collaborating, patients and physicians can work effectively as a team to make the best decisions possible.

The provider and their PA were both familiar with my record from my PCP in the EHR. They were well prepared to explain to me what was going on, what the next steps would be, and assured me that after the additional testing they would have definitive answers and a plan of care for me.

This was a bit awkward under the circumstances because of the over the phone conference call. But I understand it was the only possibility. The meeting went fine.
