We discuss how patients are frequently overwhelmed with the information we give them. How to give it to them in a more digestible way, while still being time efficient, how we can tell if they are understanding us and how to tell if they don’t plan on following our recommendations. She also teaches us how to increase the chances that a patient will choose us as their doctor. Find her at
