He doesn't know how to truly do "shared decision making" with a patient. He told me I wouldn't like the tests he was ordering, but I would do them anyways. When I asked, "Aren't we going to discuss them?" his answer was, "Oh, we can discuss them, but then you'll do them!" I found his manner and tone disrespectful. I am seriously considering not doing what he ordered because I wasn't part of the process of decision making. National Jewish Health Patient– February, 2016 Overall was good.
