    Coping with Ambiguity and Uncertainty in Patient-Physician Relationships: I. Leadership of a Physician. [REVIEW]Charles B. Rodning - 1992 - Journal of Medical Humanities 13 (2):91-101.
    A patient-physician relationship provides a milieu for a patient to achieve healing, solace, and reintegration of personhood. A patient's primary physician assumes a leadership role in that regard, coordinating and facilitating a regimen of analysis and therapy.
