In caring for patients, I think it is very important to listen carefully to their description of their symptoms and ask appropriate questions to further define what is bothering the patient. Also, patient education is a regular part of my interaction with patients as it is important that they understand what their diagnosis is and why it is important to follow the treatment plan. All patients deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
