Questions to ask the physician include:

  2. Where is it?
  3. What do you propose to do? What are the treatment possibilities?
  4. How effective is each treatment?
  5. What are the costs?
  6. What is your recommendation?
  7. Can I take some time to think about it? How much time?
  8. What do I really want and what can I expect of life?

The book also shares eight real-life situations in which the patients used Dr. Hanson’s system of questions to navigate through their individual illnesses.
