Physicians were once the sole mediators of what patients understood about their health. When we wanted to know something, we went to the doctor. And what we understood was limited to what the doctor knew. There was nothing between us and an answer.
Not so much anymore.
As doctors we’ve evolved as mediators of the things that help us with answers. Instead of being the final answer we’re somewhere in between the patient and some form of information or technology.
If you’re a doctor and you don’t think it’s the case you need to look a little closer.
It’s not worse. It’s just different.
