Open com­mu­ni­ca­tion is the cor­ner­stone of a healthy doc­tor-patient rela­tion­ship. I spend as much time as nec­es­sary to edu­cate my patients about their diag­no­sis and lis­ten to their con­cerns, so that I can bet­ter under­stand their life cir­cum­stances and rec­om­mend the most appro­pri­ate treatment.
