Directive to Physician
A Directive to Physician is designed to help you detail your desires about medical treatment when you are unable to state them on your own. This is often a difficult document for clients to discuss as you are making a very real decision about whether you wish to receive life-sustaining treatment as a very delicate time in your life.
But, just as difficult it may be to make this decision on your own, imagine how much harder it will be on your family and loved ones to make that decision for you.
