Almost everyone will be faced with the need to make a critical decision about treatment for a disease or medical condition at some point in our lives. If you’re diagnosed with diabetes or heart disease, for example, you’ll want to make sure that you get the best care possible. In that moment, many will ask: What’s the right treatment option for me?
