About the Author:

As medical director of palliative care and hospice at Methodist Hospital, Dr. Todd Sauer believes communication and education are key to helping patients and families make important decisions about their own medical care.

"I think many people find health care and making decisions about their health care very intimidating," said Dr. Sauer. "It's my goal as a physician to educate my patients so they can make the choices that fit in with their health care goals. It sounds cliche, but I really did go into medicine to help and educate people. That's important to me."
