What This Blog is About

Patients often suffer from a lack of effective communication with their physicians and other health care providers.  Many people blame physicians for this common and important problem, citing doctors’ poor communication skills.

But communication is always a two-way street.  Patients and their families can greatly improve their interactions with the health care system by using good communication skills themselves.  And, it’s surprisingly easy to do this.

This blog—and our practical guide, “Make the Health Care System Work for You!”—are dedicated to helping patients communicate successfully with doctors, other health care providers, and the health care system in general.

We welcome your own ideas and your experiences, good and bad!  Please share them with us.  (If you like, we’ll be happy to protect your confidentiality.)

Thank you and take care,

Neil Weisfeld
