Most capable doctors will agree that they learn from their patients all the time, just as a good teacher learns from his students! A skillful doctor treats the patient as the captain of the ship and himself as the navigator, and a balance of respect between the doctor and the patient can foster a partnership in which both learn all the time! However, remember that playing an active role in your own health care places the responsibility for reliable communication with your doctor squarely on you!
