Dear patient,

Thanks for the query. Sometimes providers are not well acquainted with advanced directives depending on the field they serve, but even well-versed professionals may have trouble interpreting advanced directives; social services can help, as well as Ethics team, but patient's preferences should always be honored once clarified.

Yours truly,
