My mother couldn’t advocate for herself when she needed it the most

Good reminder to patients and potential patients of the importance in asking questions to your doctor, and ensuring you understand what he or she says. This should not be viewed as a challenge to the doctor but rather to ensure that nothing is missed. Quote:

I want to make a difference to my patients and encourage all of you to make a difference in your healthcare. Speak up the moment you have a question, the moment you don’t understand something the doctor said. Don’t let more time—and more opportunity for misunderstanding—pass by. The work that you do will revolutionize your interactions with your doctor, and potentially change how your doctor interacts with future patients as well.
