  Sometimes it is not enough for doctors to merely diagnose and treat their patients. New patients especially feel that their physicians should take time to inform them about the disease they are being treated for and the consequences. The patients have the right to informed consent, the right to information concerning their own health and the right to access to their medical records [1]. Although thyroid diseases are common [2], most patients (as well as the general public) know very little when they are newly diagnosed. General information many times is lacking. Patient Organizations can assist doctors with this.
