In this paper we introduce a shift in understanding patient-physician communication from the current individualistic, behavior-changing, patient-centered perspective, toward a more performative position. This postmodern shift reconstructs the collaborative doctor-patient plotline as involving a mutually-improvising ensemble performing an interweaving of biomedical and humanistic scripts in order to more effectively negotiate medical meaning together.
