Patients of all ages put a lot of faith in the medical community. When they're sick, they go to the doctor, and the doctor makes them feel better. However, patients frequently leave the doctor's office with little understanding of how or why their physician made a particular diagnosis.
Traditionally, doctors have made decisions regarding the best care for their patients based upon what their medical school and residency professors taught them.

But modern medicine has evolved—which is where something called evidence-based medicine comes in.
