Happy patients are happy with their doctors - while unhappy ones are happy to blame and criticise their doctor. Doctors seem to have become everyone's favourite whipping boys - they are greedy and just want to make lots of money; they do not have time for their patients ; and cannot communicate well.
It's very easy to blame the doctor, but this is hardly helpful ! Patients need to understand that getting good medical care requires they they establish a healthy doctor-patient partnership - and in order to do this, they need to become expert patients !
This has become surprisingly easy to do, thanks to the net. All you need to do is invest some time and energy - and if you do get lost, there are lots of people who can help, including online bulleing boards and forums; and librarians.
The rewards are well worth it - after all, if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem ! You cannot change your doctor's behaviour - but you can change yours ! Do not underestimate your intelligence and common sense - you have a lot at stake ! A big plus to doing so is that armed with the information, you'll be able to find a better doctor !
Taking treatment at a world-class clinic will maximise your chances of success and give you peace of mind you did your best !
