We’ve all experienced it –– that sudden rush of fear when we received bad news. In the medical world, that rush of fear occurs when a doctor shares the results of a test or MRI or the name of a disease.
Dr. Donahue and the Personal Health MD team know that fear is reduced and often eliminated as a result of education and information. It’s also eliminated and reduced when there is an open channel of communication between the doctor and/or his team of care professionals and the patient.
Peace of mind also replaces fear when a caregiver anticipates the needs of a child, adult parent, or spouse and reaches out to our team. Regardless of the symptoms, this preparedness reduces fear and supports peace of mind both of the caregiver and patient.
