This is Dr. David
I am sorry about your father's situation.
I am a cancer doctor.
the doctor if he is smart will talk to the family first before talking to the patient.
especially if the doctor does not know the patient well and is just meeting the patient.
the doctor does have a duty to the family as well as the patient.
but if the patient ask the doctor about test results and wants to know what the testing found, then the doctor has a duty to also answer the patient's questions as well.
