Family plays a huge part during the recovery process of any patient. It is very important to make sure the family is on board so that they are updated with how the patient recovers. In my clinic, I make sure that each family member is up to speed with how their loved one is doing, and what they should be doing for the future. I find that when I work with a husband and wife, and the wife is being treated for a chronic health condition, the recovery process goes much smoother when the husband is in the loop. The same goes for any situation. The goal at Tustin Chronic Condition Center is to improve the quality of life for my patients, and by including the family in the process, that goal can be achieved.
