Doctor Weevil and Choosing The Right Doctor
Having a good relationship with your doctor is extremely important. Being totally open and honest with the doctor is crucial to receiving the kind of medical care you need. Patients are often shy and uncomfortable in revealing the intimate details of their lives to someone else.
But if the doctor does not have all the information he needs, he is working with one hand tied behind his back and the treatment or preventive action he recommends will often to be adequate for your needs or may even be just plain wrong. When people fall sick or their treatments are ineffective, they often blame the doctor, forgetting that they have not told him all he needs to know.
While qualifications and experience are important factors in choosing a doctor, so is his personality and your ability to relate to him. Find a doctor whom you can talk to as a friend without any hang ups and shyness. Talking about embarrassing personal problems like impotency or flatulence can be awkward, but if you can't be open with your doctor, he won't know what's wrong with you and won't be in a position to help you.
The latest studies show that one of the main reasons for improper treatment is that patients do not disclose all their medical details. Remember that your doctor is a professional and just like your accountant who needs to know everything about your finances, no matter how stupid you have been or how doubtful some transaction may be. If you hide fact from your accountant, the IRS may come calling. If you hide facts from our doctor, the consequences could be much worse.
