Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredIn taking care of your health, understand that you have options. Rather than simply taking a pill, plan to discuss your options and make an accurate determination about what you can commit to. Taking control of your own health means observing yourself, monitoring your own symptoms, and making decisions about the treatments that are best for you. Your doctor is an important and valuable resource in your health care, but you are your own primary health care provider through the lifestyle decisions you make each day. It is important that you learn to see your doctor as a partner in your desire to protect and improve your health, rather than the person most responsible for your health.
