Ever heard about a tricky clinical scenario and thought, "I know exactly how I'd handle that"? In the spirit of sharing and community, we're introducing a forum called Clinician's Quandary, where you, the reader, offer your take on how you'd address a clinical dilemma from a real practice.
On the first Tuesday of every month, we'll pose a Quandary and collect responses. Top answers from the previous month will be posted that same day and shared with your colleagues worldwide. See below for submission details.
Here's this month's Quandary:

She still wants us to meet weekly, but says she’s unsure when she’ll be able to pay me in full. This isn’t sustainable for me, but I’m trying to be sensitive to her situation. How should I proceed?
We want to hear from you:
