Can you fix it?

This has to be one of the top 10 questions that all doctors hear on a daily basis.  It is actually a troubling question to answer, because if the doctor says “yes,” then the patient is not empowered to change their health, and responsibility moves from the patient to the doctor.  Keep in mind that this problem may have taken years to develop, and the doctor is expected to provide a “fix” rather quickly.  Of course the doctor wants to say “yes,” but to do so would rob the patient of the key to change their health, and would create an unhealthy co-dependent relationship between the patient (broken) and the doctor (fixer).
