How can I determine if a doctor will be focused on wellness and prevention?
Doctors are increasingly concerned about promoting information on wellness and prevention. However, many doctors are not well-trained in these fields and many doctors may not have the time or interest to provide this information. You, as a patient, however, have every right to expect and demand it.
