Comprehensive Breast Care and Surviving Breast Cancer
We are no longer in the age of the M. Deity, when a physician never explained much to the patient and the obedient patient never asked the questions or received explanations about their disease. The physician of today has a responsibility not only to work “on” the patient but to work with the patient and her family, taking the mystique and fear out of the surgical experience. This text, along with Understanding Surgery, has brought me into a closer relationship with my patients and their families.
