“As a physician, my role is not just to diagnose and treat, but to help the patient understand medical concepts and navigate the medical system in the context of their own health issues and preferences. It has never been more important to have a trustworthy interpreter of medical knowledge, and I strive to play that role through teaching and conversation with my patients.”
