This content was provided by Dr. Mkrdichian "My approach is to present the patient with all available options with utmost honesty and clarity. Engage them and their families in the decision making process based on my professional opinion without swaying or steering them toward a specific type of treatment. Always treat patients with the same compassion I would treat a member of my own family. I will do the absolute best I can for each and every patient. "
