Dr. Heward shares how women can get the best, most up-to-date hormonal care.
This is advice in general about medical care and these days, specifically important when it comes to women and hormone replacement therapy, and that is read, read, read. I mean, we have come through a period and I believe it's time for us to grow past this period where as individual patients we abdicate responsibility for our own health to the physician that we’re going to see.
Nowadays we have resources available to us on the internet and elsewhere that enable us to get as much information as we need to make the right decisions ourselves, and we need to look at our physicians as resources, not gods that are going to answer these questions for us definitively.
