One good way to NOT be a decent doctor

Just don't take the time to show respect to your blind patient. Just don't bother. You're a doctor so there will be other people to care for, right? When the guy who happens to be blind asks you about taking B 12 for energy and help with his overall health, hey just walk out. Don't ask him if he is through with his questions and for sure do not tell him you are leaving and intend to stay away. But don't expect a courteous reply when you set your nurses to ask him where he's been when you get around to calling him a year after that. He had the courtesy to tell you he had found another doc but I guess you were too busy to note that.

@Jessicalynnt This new system of allowing 15 minutes tops for each patient adds to the lack of care.

@sallypup I would only be ok with that if it was super cheap and I was going in for say, strep, or a cough, or something I was sick with and needing meds for that and that only

@Jessicalynnt These new rules for docs are insane and not in the light of what medicine should be.

Sounds like someone who should have chosen a different career.

@celticeagle I don't know how doctors have a life and a career- this particular doc has taken off twice now for maternity leave.

@celticeagle The doc takes off months from her patients to have a kid, comes back on for a year or so then heads out again to have another kid. I guess the back up docs do her work even if they don't know the people they care for.

Wow, what a quack! Working in the healthcare field, even at its periphery, I hear stories like this all the time. Sounds like the Naturopath is at least listening.

@Rohvannyn Dad is mostly going to another doc and not to that naturopath. She really wasn't doing much.

@Rohvannyn Dad badgered the doc into finally ordering an iron test then kept him over long with his discussions.

That is a very shocking way to treat a person. It shouldn't be hard to find a better doctor than that.

It is not easy to be a doctor.
