What is the right translation of respond in the following context. A foreign learner like me perhaps will use "antworten" but I'not sure that makes any sense.

A nonsurgical treatment plan is developed and executed. Some patients respond well, and others do not. One patient comes back for reevaluation and significant disease resolution has occurred.


In German it is auf eine Behandlung ansprechen.

    Auf eine Behandlung reagieren ginge auch, aber ansprechen ist definitiv das bessere Wort. – PerlDuck Nov 29 '16 at 20:16
