  • In the old days, doctors made most of the decisions regarding a patient’s care.  The patients of an older generation relied on the doctor for his or her expertise.  There was always an option of seeing another doctor if you disagreed and getting a second opinion.  But these days there is also the option of being part of the decision-making process as there are more and more options for medical care as medicine evolves and becomes more sophisticated.

    THE AMISH COOK
