I constantly hear, and read about complaints that people have concerning their doctors, and other medical personnel.
My medical team has been, and still are (in my opinion) awesome!
Excellent, and caring can also be used to describe the service that has been rendered to me thus far.
Knowing that health, and health care can be a two-way street, all of the members of my team explain every aspect of treatment, proposed treatment, medications, exercise, basic and advanced fundamentals to me.
In return I ask questions, I listen to their answers, I read the various types of literature that are given to me.
Most importantly, I do what is asked of me and I document my findings.
Because in order to state your case, good or bad, you will need something to base your argument on, it's call FACTS, DOCUMENTED FACTS!
If what your doctor(s) proposes works, what's your point?
If it doesn't, where is your proof?
This discussion may ruffle a few feathers, but give it some serious thought, are you the cause for your unhappiness with your medical team?
My entire team at the UMDNJ Hospital (University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey), from my Primary Physician, Diabetes Team, Diabetes Educator, Podiatrist, Blood Lab Technicians, Coumadin Doctor, Dentist, Physical Therapy Doctors and Emergency Room Personnel are simply "Awesome."
Every one that I have had contact with has been extremely helpful.
I owe it to myself, and to them, to do all that I can within my power to manage my health.
I see the pride of a job well done, on their faces when my numbers, and my health improves with each scheduled appointment!
