I have seen two different doctors since being diagnosed, and I don't consider either one to be the greatest doctor. The first one was too concerned about seeing as many patients in one day than he was about my health. The second one is the type that believes he is always right, and will not take what you say under any kind of consideration. Although I was happier with the second one, I still was not completely satisfied.
My question for everyone is, did you have a doctor that you didn't think was the greatest at first, but as time went on you were able to come to an agreement? If so, what did you say to him/her to get them to listen to you. This is my health, but I am not the only one counting on me to stay healthy, but I do have a hard time standing up for myself to a doctor. I always think of the questions for them after I leave, but when I call back the nurse has brushed me off or told me to wait and talk to the doctor on my next visit…which isn't until March.
I am moving and going to a new doctor when I get there, and I don't want to make the same mistakes. I just need to know how to talk to them to make them listen.
