Standard of Care:

I subscribe to the standard of care as stated in the Oath of Hippocrates. It states: "I will prescribe regimen for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone." Note that the Hippocratic physician must follow his own judgment, which might not always agree with that of an elite committee. Most importantly, it's the good of the patients that must be servedónot that of the whole population, or of the insurerís or governmentís bottom line. My goal is to advise you, to the best of my ability, on what is optimal for you, under your circumstances. You, of course, are free to follow or to disregard my advice.

The "best practices" cited by the AMA, other medical organizations, or your insurance company may not be best for you. They are likely based on studies on suitable experimental subjects, who tend to be younger and healthier than most patients, and to be free of complicating conditions.
