Your article “Why I Let My Patients See My Notes” [Opinion, May/June 2011] by Douglas Iliff, MD, draws a line in the sand regarding honesty in the clinical setting. Any physician who includes “integrity” as part of his or her mission statement should take it to heart. I can already hear the whining (mine, internally) about how to finish the note before the patient leaves the office. But wouldn't it be great if family medicine became the specialty to spearhead honesty in this area, truly being our patient's advocate? Well done.
(Now how do I stop looking at the answers before I fill out the FPM CME quiz?)
