5 Things Your Doctor Wishes You Knew — 2 Comments

  1. I understand what you’re saying but I’d have to politely disagree with 1, 2, and 3. The doctors I have experienced listen and listen carefully. They go beyond expectation. #4 is painstakingly true. Especially when you get admitted to a hospital and all they have is hospitalists and not your primary care or specialist involved. My family members’ doctors had to cuss out many hospitalists because of this and changing their meds. Great read!

    • Thank you so much for your comment, Crystal! I am incredibly happy that you have had such positive experiences with your doctors. I have a wonderful primary care doctor who listens carefully and provides detailed responses to my concerns. As a physician, I can attest to the fact that sometimes we are not able to do this as effectively as we would like. I am also a hospitalist and I agree that this care model can create disjointed care, particularly if the hospitalist physicians are not in contact with the primary care doctors and specialists who know the patient best. Good two-way communication is key! I hope you will take the time to read some of the other articles and please let me know if there is another topic you’d like to hear about.
