I'm in total of agreeance (sic)!
I believe everyone has examples where patients ideas and concerns override the best evidenced-base practices. Most recent and very common, a patient with a High K+ level. "I refuse to drink that nasty Kayexalate." So, the physician and medical staff have to find another way, and more invasive way I might add.
Mechanic: "You need a new starter, and we can get a new one on your vehicle in about 2 hours."
Customer: "Oh, I am against starters." Can we find another way to start the vehicle...please." LOL
