Patient Education - Can You Know Too Much?

Patient Education - Can You Know Too Much?: "Patient education is for better understanding. It may be time to find a new doctor if you genuinely feel you are smarter than your doctor and are unable to build good rapport. Consider, though, that patient education may have improperly empowered you. Recognize that patient education is for the purpose of better understanding. Patient education must not diminish the role of your doctor who ultimately must lead, direct, and decide the best course of medical treatment for you. In the end, you must be able to trust your doctor and respect his advice. It is with that trust and respect that you build a strong doctor-patient relationship."
