COMMUNITY: Frequently Asked Questions
Uterus1: Do you consider a patient's opinion on treatment?
Dr. Rodney Halvorsen: I think creating an atmosphere for communication is really important. Asking your patients about their perceptions can help greatly, since perceptions can often lead to wrong assumptions. I usually discuss their concerns and answer any of their questions and give them the American College of OB/GYN pamphlets about the disease. Then we get the test done, and in a short period of time I will have them come in to go over the test, and develop an individual plan for her. I want to develop a trusting relationship with each one of my patients and show her that I am involved in her care, that I care about her problem, and that she is personally important to me, as is the outcome of her illness.
