    The Doc Who E-mailed Me.

    I went to a specialist I really liked last year. I thought he seemed very interested in me, but told myself to forget about it when I left the office. That night he e-mailed me a question related to my profession. I responded, and by the end of the week the e-mails were very...

    I've Had Bad Experiences With Doctors.

    We might have an NHS system where I live but that doesn't mean we have perfect doctors. I have had my fair share of abusive, unsympathetic and very rude doctors. One time I went to the doctors for my depression. I usually hate going to the doctors and I rarely saw them at...

    many doctors are so quick to hand out

    prescriptions that they don't even get to the root of the problem. rather than take the time to talk through a situation with a patient, they throw pills at them that may or may not even be the correct solution. i went to a doctor for panic attacks I was having and the issue of...

    Doctors Vs Patients

    I agree, I hate how some doctors treat some patients.A while back, I happened to over hear someone telling another person, not because they are doctors or any other superior, they are better or can be trusted.  I don't have a clue what they were talking about but this is the...

    Doctors are the freaking worst.

    They call you in then have you walk back to the lobby. You have to wait another 5 minutes. At the hospital you wait there for 10 hours at night. It's the worst, at night only 2 doctors are working everyone else is leaving or eating like turtles. It makes me want to threw on...

    A lot of my doctors/psychiatrists wanted to

    blame every bit of my mental illnesses on my weight. I may not be happy with my body, but the fact that "professionals" think that it makes perfect sense for my weight to make me want to kill myself, I have lost a bit of respect for some doctors.

    In the US, the doctors just hose you down.

    Even supposed non-profits will send everything to collection if you're hard up for money at all, and threaten to sue, while the head doctors live in vast mansions and lord it over everyone else. If you're working class, you can't get any benefits. It's either have nothing...

    Felt Like He Didn't Care

    It was hard for me to go and see a doctor about my depression in the first place. I didn't like having to go to a total stranger and discuss my personal problems. My mom pushed me to go to our family doctor, so I went. When I told him how I was feeling, he acted as if he...

    Some doctors think they are God and have a complex thinking they know everything.  This causes them to talk down to their patients. I hate that!
