|Dr. Michael L. Aaronson, MD|
Kidney Doctor and High Blood Pressure Specialist
"Patients want to know about the doctor who takes care of them. They want to know the physician's background, a little bit about the doctor's personal life, and why that provider would be the preferred choice for the individual patient who needs medical care." I learned these facts recently at a continuing medical education conference I attended.
Have you ever tried to look up a doctor before allowing that physician to take care of you? I have. Nowadays we all do. However, in my opinion, even with Google search savvy and knowledge of the use of the internet, I have run into difficulty finding enough information to make an informed decision. In my opinion, the websites available today surprisingly lack the information I seek. Therefore, we doctors have a personal responsibility to make what is invisible to the patient visible -- if we have nothing to hide. In other words, I need to provide you, a possible future patient, with more details about me, so that you can decide if you want to trust me to serve your kidney and high blood pressure needs.
