As Dave stressed "Let patients help", my question is how can patients help their doctors?
The relation between a doctor and his/her patient is a relation of trust. If a doctor feels that he or she is not trusted enough, they may switch into defensive decision making process. And that would surely not yield good result. I personally believe that doctors treat their patients in best faith, but their treatment method may not be best. One of the vital resources "patient" is neglected till now. So how can patient help their doctor?
