Not Remembering, and Not Knowing ItPeople who will develop dementia may begin to lose awareness of their memory problems two to three years before the actual onset of the disease, according to a new study by researchers at Rush.
I’ve been a physician at Rush for over 20 years, and above all I think my patients know they can trust me. We have a relationship of mutual respect. They know they can expect me to actively listen whether they have a small problem or larger issues. And they know that I’ll give them advice that’s recent and up-to-date, and they’re counting on me for that information so that they can make appropriate decisions about their health.
