Circus by Steven Mussey MD

2014-04-29circusIn primary care, one of the best things we can do for a patient is to keep their experience from turning into a “Three Ring Circus.”
This means, explaining the purpose of each referral, making sure studies are communicated to the patient in a timely manner, discussing “where we are and where we need to go in the care plan,” answering questions, monitoring for unnecessary drugs, and adding or even eliminating unnecessary referrals. It takes extra time and additional visits, yet it will help that patient more than you can imagine.
