Sapna Patel, Mark Gimbel, Michael Wong and Rena Szabo about team medicine, the importance of communication and treating the whole person. Dr. Patel acknowledges a partnership between herself and her patients, and knows communication of details is key during treatment, especially when tracking patients’ medicine—prescription or herbal, which can have effects during treatment. Dr. Gimbel, Dr. Wong and Rena Szabo talk about resourcing support, such as psychological therapy for patients who take interferon and suffer from depression.
