Dr Allan Gibofsky on How Physicians Can Respond to Patients' Communication Needs

American Journal of Managed Care—April 20, 2017

American Journal of Managed Care interviewed Allan Gibofsky, MD, rheumatologist at HSS, on how physicians can more effectively communicate with patients to prevent a communication gap.

"Many times physicians are not as specific in what they want done, assuming that the patients will understand from a general description. Many times patients are reluctant to ask the necessary questions about what to do. We can all be better listeners, including our patients, and we can all be better discussants of patient care problems," said Dr. Gibofsky.

"It’s necessary for all physicians, all healthcare providers, to recognize patients’ needs in terms of communication requirements," he added.
