Questions and Answers

Q16. When you don't agree with the doctor's response to an aging parent, are there strategies, besides changing doctors to get more satisfactory care?

A16. Monica Keefe:
This is a tough question, but basically it comes down to communicating with the physician as honestly as possible and talking about your concerns. If the problem is not resolved and the physician will not meet your parents' needs, then you may be better off changing physicians. It is important to remember that you (and your parents) are the consumer, and as such have a right to the type of medical care that is appropriate.
