I really love to find out people’s opinion about things that in my opinion are really important for our health maintenance. I just realized that nobody here ever asked a open question about your type of perfect doctor or what does constitutes for you a good doctor. Of course, I’m going to talk first because I think that I’m going to start this topic with my experience that I have had during all my entire life. Unfortunately or maybe fortunately (in some cases) I have had really bad experienced during my life, I have changed a lot of doctors and have had big troubles to get well during some periods of my life. Of course some of the things that happen to us are related to something unimportant that can be cured at home by your own. I’m that kind of person that will never go to visit the doctor if I have something that I know that I can treat by myself and that I just can get well without extra intervention. I have had troubles as I think all of us have, and sometimes there is really necessary to go to visit your doctor. I have changed at least 5 doctors because of incapability to go ahead with the same their position and decisions made on my own health. So, talking briefly, it doesn’t matter what kind of disease you have or what does make you feel bad, as soon as you decided to talk with your doctor the first thing that he have to do is to LISTEN. I have poorly reached this point with my first 3 doctors that I have had. Every time I was there talking about a problem that I have had, I was always interrupted, and nothing that I used to say about my health, or about the pain that I feel or other problems that I have had seem to be something unnecessary for my doctor. I just hate this- how can this be? I mean every time when I start to talk with my doctor he just shuts me up with an extremely important phrase to add, like: I already got what you have. After some time when you came back with some complains about his work, or about the drug that he prescribed you, or just telling that nothing changed since the last time you have visited him, he comes back with a good reply: “This is your fault, you should be talking clear” or something like this: “You never told me what your are saying now”. I get so mad sometimes, especially on these phrases, because I feel like I have been fooled and I just rest here, with 2 months full of the same problems that I already had with no progress. The second thing that I appreciate in good doctors is when they are open minded and accepts the fact that there can be something better that can help you better and that can be an alternative to what he proposed to me. This situation is really familiar to a lot of people, I have heard that a lot of doctors don’t accept when you tell them that you would like to have a drug instead of the drug that he proposed to you, not because you can’t take it but just because they don’t what to accept the fact that there can be something that can help you! Of course some of you wouldn’t agree with me, and I’m sure that here I can find a lot of doctors that will read it and will be angry at me. I’m sorry but this is my reality, this is something that happened to me and I think that these are the most inappropriate things that a doctor can do.
