Check these expectations and clarify any misunderstandings. The patient may also have immediate concerns that will need to be addressed before the patient will be comfortable about addressing other matters like behavior change. It is important to identify these and respond appropriately. It is also worth acknowledging the context of the consultation for the patient.

The patient’s problem always comes as an unknown, and you will have to work as far as possible with the problem on the basis of knowledge already possessed.
