We All Want To Trust Our Doctors
We all want to trust our doctors, surgeons, and nurses to make the right decisions for ourselves and our loved ones. Whether it is an unexpected trip to the emergency room, a planned surgery, or spending our golden years in a nursing home or assisted living facility. Patients place an unfathomable amount of trust into their health care providers, deeming them competent enough to view preceding medical records, accurately diagnose their illnesses and successfully perform operations that could pose a great risk to a patient's life if gone awry.
