Patient knowledge, patient power

For all the health care services and specialists available today, the single most important factor in your good health is you. Nothing has greater power or influence. Taking responsibility for your own health and playing an active role in it are the most important steps to good health.

The more you know about your condition, the more informed and responsible a patient you can be. You’ll be able to better understand medical facts and interpret what your doctor tells you. You’ll be able to ask pertinent questions and make informed decisions. You'll become a partner in the treatment process, working with your doctor to determine a treatment for your condition and your needs.
