True, Mark but on the downside, doctors actually give you very little information, no matter how educated you are. For example when i was going thru IVF no one explained the details. I relied on lots of online stuff and occasionally a friend who’d been thru it. I spent a lot of time informally counseling other women at the clinic while we waited our turns. When i first got pregnant the dr told me i would do a c-section. No detailed explanation, just that precious babies will be delivered c-section and i have no options. Sure, i could’ve changed the doctor, but he’s actually one of the most ethical there are in Egypt, so… I still love him, but the general “no need to bother the patient with info” even tho my husband the surgeon was also sitting right there! I mean, come on!
