DR. ROBERT H. TRUE: When someone comes into the clinic, the way that I prepare for a consultation is that I tell myself I am going into see a relative. Okay. And I am treating them just as I would a family member. I have that same concern for them that I want to help them make the best decision that they can for themselves with complete information. And I will make absolutely certain that I give them all of the alternatives so that they can make that decision.
