Forming a Doctor-Patient Relationship

July 18, 2016

Dr. Stephen Sanders talks about the doctor-patient relationship.

A strong partnership with your physician can be pivotal to your health. Just ask Mercy Clinic Internal Medicine Dr. Stephen Sanders, who took that message to a grand stage.

In a recent TEDxSaintLouisUniversity (SLU) presentation, Dr. Sanders spoke about informed patients who form partnerships with their doctors and encourages patients to ask questions, get answers and make sure to understand a diagnosis.
