Do I Have The Right To Information Needed To Make A Health Care Decision?

Yes. Physicians have the responsibility to provide patients with information that can help them to make a decision. Your physician will explain what treatments may help you how each treatment may effect you, that is, how it can help you and what, if any, serious problems or side effects the treatment is likely to cause what may happen if you decide not to receive treatment. Your physician may also recommend what, if any, treatment is appropriate, but the final decision is yours to make. All of this information is provided so you can exercise your right to decide your treatment wisely.
