It is important to me the patient feels like they are a part of their health care team. I want them to understand what we are doing, why we are doing it and what are their healthcare goals.In being part of their team, sometimes I get to be their coach, sometimes their cheerleader and other times their shoulder to lean or cry on. No matter what role, as their provider I want them to know that they are valued, important to me and have been listened to.
