Example text

But I did expect my patients to benefit from the additional level of expertise that the specialists could offer. Unfortunately that didn’t happen. I guess it was too much to ask at the time, because not a single one of my patients was offered anything more than a “Don’t worry, you’re fine” opinion. No biopsy, nothing. It was a fruitless and frustrating 48 Interventions exercise. But once I discovered that my own hospital’s radiologists had begun doing liver biopsies, I became their first best customer.

If not, then it is simply not needed. Persuading my own patients to have a liver biopsy can be a challenging task. I don’t blame them for their ambivalence.

But I did expect my patients to benefit from the additional level of expertise that the specialists could offer.
