What if the recommendations I get from other doctors clash with what you give me?
This is a common problem that many patients go through. Ultimately we do not want to get in the way of care you get from other doctors, but at the same time, you are in charge. Ultimately you have to choose what is the solution that works well for you. The more informed you are and the less passive you are about the process, the better. It is critically important to be your own advocate or be the advocate of your loved ones who are in the medical system. Use different doctors for the benefits you get from them, and use them to create the right medical support system for your needs.
