    To Heal Or To Steal?! They Need To Care!

    Appointments And Consultation

    I had to go for a consultation with our family doctor. It was arranged at short notice as the scheduled appointment for tomorrow was cancelled and they called me up to see if I wanted to come over today. The concerns were more to do with manly matters and facing a female doctor...

    Ego Maniacs

    I deal with doctors all the time. Some are real jerks. My dad's neurologist is the most egotistic pain in the ***. She's rarely in the office. I mean 2:30pm on a weekday and she's not available. Hello! What's the point of having an office if you're never there when your patients...

    La-la-la They're Not Listening

    I'm a doctor and I hate it when my colleagues won't listen.I am in specialized medicine.I ask them, "Why did you call me for a referral? If you want a consensus, ask your best friend.  If you want an honest medical assessment, shut up and listen."  That usually doesn't go over...

    I feel like doctors have been failing me all my

    life by not listening or taking me seriously. They always dismiss my medical concerns at first and it takes ages to get them to take me seriously enough to run the necessary tests that lead to an accurate diagnosis. I almost always figure out what I have before they do and turn...
