    I find it unnecessary and detrimental to the patient's well-being when care providers use scare-tactics in their evaluation / recommendation of care. Saying things like "well your could risk such and such and then you die and that's your choice" isn't strong bedside manner to say the least. It would show more loving kindness to use words such as "I am concerned this could happen but we may be able to explore other possibilities if you feel strongly about it.

    Prescribed medication side effects and risks were not thoroughly discussed. Options for integrative care or alternative modalities did not seem supported.
