vyseerx please post the correct answers for millions of posts u started. Thanks smiling face


D sound correct as u want to know y they are asking for that


d is the correct answer. you should know more before deciding on whether or not you have to inform the diagnosis at this point of time. in doctor-patient relationship, it is needed that you inform him everything, even if does not asks it. dont force a patient to listen to the badnews rightaway, as it sometimes hurts the patient's interests! so, "tell me , why you dont want......." is the correct answer.
