I believe a relationship between a patient and his/her physician is that of a partnership. I give the patients the information they need so they can make the best informed decision possible. One of the reasons I went into rheumatology is because I enjoy building long lasting relationships with patients. I still find this one of the most fulfilling parts of practicing medicine.
