Lack of patient participation in medical decision-making
Disregard of patient's personal needs

The doctor-patient relationship is not a therapeutic alliance in which the doctor and the patient decide together the best treatment, but usually the doctor alone decides the medically best treatment. Some argue that the lack of personalized care and involvement of patients in medical decision-making may further aggravate a patient's physical and psychological condition.
