Thank you Dr. Farris for this article! You were able to break through many barriers simply by respecting the Shah family & creating a safe space for them to trust you. One of the lessons I learned early on as a social worker, which I hope will serve me as a physician, is that trust naturally leads to patient compliance & better outcomes.
