Memorable Quotes

“Because this is a customer service industry and you should be in partnership, right? So, a really good care provider is going to sit down and say, what goals are you looking to achieve? What things are important to you? And then share what they’ve find based on labs tests and all this other stuff and then start marrying their responsibility because we got to face it, your medical provider actually takes legal responsibility for your health care.” – Betty Murray

“Your provider should be able to have the strength and resolve in their own capacity and reality to say, I don’t know. And either it’s not something I’m great at, but maybe I can find somebody who is, or I can be a partner with you in that process.” – Betty Murray
