"I believe that a relationship between doctor and patient should be a partnership, not a dictatorship. I understand that each patient has a unique situation, and there is not always a right answer. But, through honest conversation and mutual respect, you can get to the best answer for the patient. It's important for patients to be upfront about expectations right from the beginning. There needs to be a willingness from the physician and the patient to work through problems together."
