Making Time to Really Listen to Your Patients

I read a very interesting article in Harvard Business Review that healthcare providers and patients should read.  The link to the article is below.

A great quote from the article is below:

When doctor and patient join forces, the team dynamic dismantles the harmful hierarchy. Both members of the dyad can rely on each other because neither owns all the data that matter.

Another reason to have good information to share with your healthcare provider, so you can spend the time in meaningful conversation.
