Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor

There is no reason what you cannot be as informed as your doctor - or more informed (at least about your own particular issue - though sometimes a doctor has a wider perspective). Being informed is your best defense - as I keep carping about in my book "Managing Your Doctor"

  1. I love that you're supporting this concept - we as consumers must learn as much as we can about ourselves. Our doctors will never know as much about us as we do - they have a different perspective, yes, but it's a team effort, two people working together with each bringing expertise to the table. I love googling genuine sites with accurate information, putting together my own puzzle pieces, and then talking with my (trusted) doctor about what I found. It's what we all need to do.
