Patients get the doctors they deserve

Many patients enjoy complaining about their doctors and how rude they are, or how they make them wait for ever. It's easy to blame the other person, but I feel patients need to learn to take more responsibility . While you cannot control your doctor's behaviour, you can control the doctor you select. If you persist in going to a doctor who is rude, uncommunicative or unhelpful, then aren't you as much to blame for his behaviour, because you put up with it ? Rather than think of yourself as a helpless victim, learn to be more assertive - this will help your doctor to improve as well !
After all, doctors also get the patients they deserve ! Doctors who invite questions from their patients , take pride in answering them , and encourage patient participation have a much better class of patients, and a much more satsifying practise, because challenging patients are what makes a doctor's life worthwhile !
