  • Shared Decision Making

    With all the things I have to cover during my 20 minute follow-up visits with my patients with diabetes, I sometimes struggle with whether or not to interrupt as they tell me about something that, at first, seems irrelevant, at least to me.

     I do, however, enjoy most of these discussions as I learn about their recent to Hawaii or some fishing trip. I do enjoy living vicariously through the lives of my patients!
