When asked what is the best advice you have received, Morgan reflects on that from a previous patient. “The patient said don’t forget about us [patients] we are the one with the issue/condition and most of the time we are scared, anxious, or uneasy because we don’t understand what is going on or why we are in pain, so remember to go slow with your explanations and just show us that you care.”
