Frequently Asked Questions

Effective treatment is always helped by effective communication between the patient and his physician, and by the patients understanding of the disease and treatment approach. Patients are sometimes reluctant to ask questions about issues that concern them, or are unsure of what to ask. Please feel free to ask for detailed information and explanation of any issue or instruction you do not fully understand. Do not hesitate to ask the same question again if you are unsure if our answer is not clear.
