Frustrated with docotrs
Hello-I feel that I must put in a few words on this thread. I am part of the medical team. A nurse. I have found that there are good doctors and bad ones, good nurses and bad ones, good medical profecssionals and bad ones. I can say that this really has confused and upset me over the years. I sometimes feel ashamed of them.
But please remember that there are good medical people out there even doctors.
I am sorry that you have had a bad time with doctors. Some can be real jerks and do not deserve to practice. I could never understand why they even bothered to do into the medical field if they could not have any compassion for people and their problems. :roll:
As a few have said-if they treat you badly then first try and find another docotr. One that you can trust and one that you can talk to.
I teach patients to be empowered when going to the doctor. It is their job to listen to us and what our symptoms are as well as what questions we have, what problems we are having and what we need. First talk to the nurse who is checking you in, tell her the things you are seeing the doctor and what you need. They talk with the doctor and write down questions, concerns, etc. Bring them with you to the doctor and make sure they answer them.
If the doctor and the nurse doesn't listen to you then you need someone else to get the care you deserve and need.
Then I always ask the doctor to write down on a piece of paper what the instructions are for me. It helps them to be accountable. I am a nurse and have gone to doctor who still write down the simplest instructions for simple things for me. It means they care.
I so hope that you can get a doctor that will listen to you and that you can trust. We have enough problems with this disease that we do not need crap from a doctor.
Keep your head up and stand your ground with these guys. They are human and so are we and we deserve respect!!!!
I hope things turn out better for you. you have my support and let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with.
