One favorite technique: sitting at the edge of the bed so he can address his client eye-to-eye. Their reaction often takes him aback. "It's not uncommon for a patient to get this panicked look and ask, 'What's wrong, Doc? Is it bad news?'" said Feldman, an internist who also directs the training of medical residents at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
