What to Do When Patients Don't Heed Your Advice

The overwhelming majority of my patients act with good sense. Nevertheless, the confusion of preexisting patient conclusions and the use of self-validating search engine searches as a substitute for either research or offered wisdom and experience are seemingly on the rise. It is human nature to seek confirmation bias. However, we've been a nation that has sought education and knowledge, and celebrated wisdom. Increasingly, I've seen the consequences of a societal derision of the educated as being uncool and of the wise as unworthy of notice.
