If you don't know what's going on, how can you treat? Dr. Prather tells some amazing patient stories that show the crucial role of patient history, a thorough exam, and in-depth diagnostics. In this episode, you'll learn:
--Why Dr. Prather believes taking shortcuts on proper procedures could be disastrous for the patient and why he refuses to compromise.
--The importance of patients being willing to take the time to make sure they are getting the care that they need.
--Why the doctors that rush you in and out of the office are more likely to be concerned with making money instead of patient care.
--That 90% of the diagnosis comes from the patient's history. (And how that history also designs out the basis of the patient's care.)
--Why Dr. Prather takes his patient histories in a living room environment instead of a sterile exam room setting. (And how Dr. Prather compares his job to being a detective.)
--The role family medical history plays in proper patient care.
--What Dr. Prather teaches to Medical Doctors and Nurse Practitioners about patient examinations.
--Why proper imaging should not be neglected in order for the patient to receive the right treatment--particularly with Chiropractic care.
--The reason why Dr. Prather's X-rays have been said to be in the Top 1%.
--Plus, hear Ben's inspiring story about losing 60 pounds (so far!) in just two-and-a-half months (after weighing over 400 pounds) on the Prather Practice Healthy Habits program.
