Hi Matt,

Do you, or have you ever in the past, used a more formal “Report of Findings” for patients beyond just the verbal discussion at their visit?  E.g. on paper, listing their prioritized concerns, objective baseline findings, estimates of progress, estimate of cost, etc.  I’ve been reading about how this can increase compliance of sticking with the number of sessions needed in the beginning.  I like the idea but I’m wondering if it is either unnecessary or if it will create a locked-in expectation about the number of treatments required even if listed as “estimates”.  Any thoughts?
