What it feels like going to a doctor

What it feels like going to a doctor Excellent advise from a professor to medical students. " Finally, I'll just add one more interesting comment that was made by a professor earlier in the week. He was discussing communication between doctors and patients, which is obviously very important, and this professor depicted the relationship in the following way: Do you remember how you felt the last time you took your car to an auto mechanic? If you're like most people, you probably don't even know how to change your own oil, let alone fix some obscure engine problem. The mechanic can explain everything to you in perfect detail, but the jargon means nothing to you. All you want him to do is fix your car, do a good job, and not rip you off. This is how patients feel when they visit the doctor. They're helpless, and they're counting on you to do what's best for them."
