The Cheerful Oncologist is at it again ...

In this post, the good doctor gives us some insight into why we sometimes feel that our physicians appear to be using unintelligible double-speak when "letting us in" on what makes us tick (or not) ... *cough* ...

"Sometimes doctors have to provide counseling in such a manner as to not create a wailing morass of distraught relatives who become a whirling dervish of misinformation and despair. You may call it tergiversation, but we pros call it diplomacy."
