When patients are ignorant - stop blaming the doctor !

I sometimes cringe when I see how little patients who have gone through an IVF cycle know about their own treatment. When I ask them simple questions like - " How many eggs did they collect ? What was the grade of your embryos ?" , the stock reply is - " We don't know, because the doctor never told us !" I feel there's little point in blaming the doctor. It would be far more constructive to say - " We don't know because we didn't ask !"
There's no point in criticising anyone - you cannot control anyone else's behaviour. However, you are responsible for your own actions - it's far more constructive to imporove your own behaviour !
