    Do doctors have to follow IPPS-R guidelines or they optional even though they are the gold standard?

    The guidelines have come from clinical research and data from around the world. As to whether they need to follow them, doctors use their best judgment and knowledge from their practice and those they collaborate with to use them as a guide when deciding on treatment. As this disease is so variable, each individual may or may not respond to a specific treatment and working with your physician including being an active participant in your care is essential. Just my take.
