Patients typically come to see me because they need a general practitioner or a family medicine physician — usually to manage their chronic or acute medical problems and usually to do routine or preventative health screenings. Then I also have a geriatric population, and I see them because they usually need someone to manage their emotional well-being. We have to assess for fall risks, mental status, decision-making capacities, end-of-life care. I tell my patients to ask questions — keep asking questions until you understand what’s going on. Part of our role is to educate our patients to make sure that they are well aware of all of the pros and cons of each decision they’re making and then what would fit with their lifestyle. And then from there it’s ideal that they make their own decision and that we don’t make it for them, because if I just tell them, it doesn’t mean as much as when a patient really understands it and wants to do it for themselves.
