We’ll do everything we can to make you feel better. This may be a prescription for medication that will help with your symptoms or illness. Or it may just be reassurance that everything will be OK and instructions for taking care of yourself or your loved one at home. Either way, we consider it time well spent.
All treatments and tests have potential risks and benefits. If something isn’t likely to help you -- for example, antibiotics won’t cure a viral infection -- we won’t recommend it. If it's something for which the risks are greater than the potential benefit -- for example, a CT scan for a minor head injury -- we won’t recommend that, either.
