    I have the free agency to decide for myself if a certain thing is going to be done regarding my health. My Dr gives me the options and than I decide. Ive changed drs more than once because they had a superiority about themselves. One of my most favorite Drs decided a few years back to be a stay at home mom as her husband brought in enough income so they moved to another town quite a ways from here. We communicate a lot and shes a dear friend. We have changed drs when one asked my husband what he wanted for his chronic asthma and my husband thought to himself that's why I pay a copay and have I insurance. No Dr is superior to there patient even though a lot think that.

    "No matter how smart patients are, they're still subordinate in a relationship with a physician,"

    No. I'm the consumer and you are the provider. If I don't like the service, you're fired.

    "No matter how smart patients are, they're still subordinate in a relationship with a physician," Sloan said.

    I should certainly hope not. But that patients and physicians work in a partnership relationship in regard to and for the good of the patient's own health. Physicians are not superior to their patients just because they are a physician.
