From our Healthy Highlights series: Dartmouth-Hitchcock providers Dr. Sanders Burstein and Dr. Dale Vidal talk about why some people get intimidated in going to the doctor, and emphasize that patients should feel comfortable asking questions of their providers.

Dr. Burstein says, "An empowered patient is one that's involved. Who feels that they have control and choice and understanding. Is willing to ask questions when they don't understand, and asserts their choice in whatever decisions being made."
