When someone comes in and they have a diagnosis, they’re scared. It’s a new diagnosis. They have a lot of questions and a lot of concerns. And I really try to work with them to allay their fears, to address concerns one-by-one—whether it’s what the treatment regimen entails or some of the side effects of those treatments.
There are so many external factors that come into play with a patient. Maybe things are going on at work, things are going on at home with their children and all these things really affect patients’ health. So, I really take the time to try to get to know many of the external factors that might be influencing how the patient is feeling on that particular day.
