It’s okay to ask questions in health care.
The non-intuitive health care system has trained too many patients to either view doctors as script writing robots that are an annoying barriers to getting what they know they want before their appointment or the other extreme of passive patients that completely defer to a doctor’s rushed expertise and judgement.
