“We listen with respect. This is the most important thing. In addition, I’ve had the fortune of having the same basic group of colleagues with me for most of my career, and they know the patients as well as I do. Our patients feel very comfortable talking to them and sharing details, so that helps us as we focus on the patients’ plan for prevention and diagnosis. It makes a big difference,” said Dr. Del Valle.
