Patients fear of being seen as 'difficult'
Patients are encouraged to take charge of their own health, ask their doctors questions and stay proactive in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. However, according to a recent study by the Palo Alto (Calif.) Medical Foundation Research Institute, patients are worried about being perceived as “difficult” to their doctors when it comes to making important healthcare decisions.
