It think it's important to add that it's not (or shouldn't be) an ego thing about who's "boss". My doctors are part of my team, of which I am captain (yet my PCP is "manager"). I respect their opinions (ALL
opinions are respected and considered), and am willing to do what I need to do to earn their trust and respect. It takes some considerable effort assembling a "winning" team that works well, but it is so worth it.
