My doctor is very good, but very busy and doesn't have time to talk to me

A patient sent me an email after she had failed an IVF cycle.

I asked her, " After your failed cycle, when you went back to your doctor, what she advise you? "

She looked very sheepish and said, "My doctor is very good, but she is very busy. She only has five minutes for patients, so she didn't have much time to talk to me" , and I found this a little surprising.

What's the point of having a very good doctor if that doctor is so busy that they don't have time to talk to you? You, after all, want someone who is of course very good, but who also has enough time to spend with you so they can apply their expertise and their experience to your particular case.

After all , the reason you are spending so much money is to utilise their expertise ! No matter how good your doctor, if they don't focus their energy on your particular problem, their " goodness " is not going to help you in order to achieve your goal.

This is why it's so important that you find not only a doctor who is good, but also someone who can devote enough time and energy to you, not just applying their mind to your particular problem, but also counseling you and advise you so that you can maximize your chance of having a baby and you have peace of mind that you have received the best quality medical care.
