Do you lie to any of your doctors? (And no, not just about if she looks fat in her dress.)

A new study found that most people are lying to their doctors, especially millennials.

I did an interview with a woman from the University of Utah who did the study. Her name is Angie Fagerlin, she’s the Research Scientist, Salt Lake City VA Informatics Decision-Enhancement and Analytic Sciences (IDEAS) Center for Innovation.

She said that clear and truthful communication between patients and their doctors is paramount to staying healthy.
