The Physician-Patient Relationship

Protecting the trusted patient-physician relationship

The patient-physician relationship is unique and must be protected. Not only must patients trust in their doctors’ knowledge, experience, and skill, but they must also trust that their physician is acting in their best interest — neither motivated nor distracted by competing interests. In return, the physician is responsible for recommending and applying the most appropriate, science-based treatments for the patient’s individual circumstances and medical conditions.
