Good Doctor
Nov 25, 2009

I'm not quite sure if I chose the right doctor. My doctore suggested that I start medication. However, he made me choose as to what medication I would like to take. So I picked Atripla but haven't started taking it. Isn't he suppose to tell me what he thinks is best for me? I'm quite puzzled. Now I'm not really sure if I should start medication. I feel 100% healthy. Should I seek a second opinion? Where are the best doctors in Northern CA.

Response from Dr. Henry

I usually offer patients a choice of which medications and don't tell patients what to take so I would endorse the approach taken by the doctor you saw. KH
