>>I think it’s always important for the patient to understand what the technology
is and how we’re going to fix them. Most physicians, like myself, spend a
fair amount of time in a clinic, visit, really trying to explain, showing
images, their images to them. And then explaining where
we are with the technology. I think it’s always appropriate for a patient
to ask a physician even how many have you done or where did you train or how, you
know, what are my other options. I mean those things should be very
clear and I have been here for a while. I’ve been doing this work — I started
my endovascular training in 1996. They have to know that you understand
the problem, that you care about them, that you’re technically, you know,
capable of fixing this issue for them, what some of the bumps along the road
could be and how you plan to fix it. And I always tell people if you plan
A, you better have a plan B. Think through the problem carefully so
that they know what their options are and the physician knows what the options are. If it doesn’t exactly as you planned, have
another, you know, idea already in mind of how you’re going to anticipate every issue
that arises and how you’re going to fix it and I think if you can let people
know that you care about them and that you’re there doing the very best
you can for them and you’re going to be with them every step of the
way, then I think that helps.
