Good...It is nice that the patient knows what ails him, what remedies are avialable and possible riks thereon etc. But is it necessary that he should be told the possible eventualities too? Isn't it better that certain crucial info is shared only with the patient"s relatives or family. Do we have to be 'book-thorough'in everything we do?


The doctor-Patient relationship is one of absolute trust. True, it is better the patient knows what he is stepping into and the doctor knows what is he embarking on. But could we cut these aspects to precise scientific terms?. It is the turst that overrides all other considerations. So something has to be done in the direction of strengthening the mutual trust. A surgical procedure or treatment of an ailment cannot be seen simply as an ordinary commercial transaction.
