Doctor-Patient Communication Gap

Dr. Maurice Bernstein wants to talk about the medical communications gap. Here is what he has to say:

"This communication gap in medical practice, I think, is related to lack of time or simply ignorance or inattention on the part of the physician and the apparent power difference between the patient and doctor so that the patient may feel embarrassed, intimidated or unsure about the consequences of speaking out.

What are your ideas about the issue of doctor-patient communication?"

If you want to speak out on this issue, go here and comment at his blog.
