from Podiatry Today
Why would people go to the trouble of seeking out a healthcare provider’s medical advice only to neglect or reject the provider’s educated information? Discouraging? Absolutely. But is this disregarding behavior by patients unique to any one specialty? Hardly. As long as there has been a doctor-patient relationship, there has been some degree of non-adherence.
