Providing Appropriate Patient Care

August 16, 2011

I would like to thank Dr. Van Woensel for his article,1 in which he politely and thoroughly reminds the thousands of fellow CDA members—and the many more professionals who read JCDA online—of our obligations to appropriate patient care.

At a time when far too much emphasis is being placed by many in our profession on “elective” treatments (i.e., Botox, fillers), the core message of good decision-making needs to be inhaled daily by all of us.
