My friend and cousin Jennifer sent me a link to this article by Dr. Lamberts on his blog, Musings of a Distractable Mind.
His post is the best advice I have ever read for patients with chronic disease. He details how to approach doctors when you are burdened with a chronic disease. His post also explains why sometimes we doctors fail to deliver the compassionate care that we all aspire to. Click on the link below to be taken to his post.
