Family physicians care for patients young and old throughout their lives. It is often our duty to tell a patient that he or she has a serious, sometimes life-threatening illness. In these circumstances, we try to comfort them and develop an effective treatment plan. We may recommend specialty care, surgery or other procedures and medications to afford the greatest chance at treating the illness or disease. Upon putting a treatment plan together, it is heartbreaking to see our patients unable to afford the recommended medications to help them fight or manage an illness or condition.
