Finding a doctor that you can identify with and one that will partner with you to ensure you are receiving the best medical care available is sometimes a daunting task. It’s important to keep in mind that you should research your doctor before going, or scheduling that first appointment. More time devoted to checking their credentials, talking with friends, and/or family members regarding their opinions, and experiences with their doctors, will assist you in your level of trust, and pave the way for your medical exams to be productive.
Many people fail to understand the importance of being part of the team when it comes to their own health. The ability to research any and all health issues is literally at your fingertips, and while some doctors and other medical professionals may attempt to steer their patients away from this type of research, it can be used to provide life-saving information if used correctly.
Trust Your Own Instincts
You know your body better than any medical professional, and you should never assume that they are always providing you with the best medical advice. If you have a medical concern and your doctor tells you, it is “nothing to worry about,” but you cannot let go of the feeling that something is not right, do not hesitate to pursue it by seeking a second, or third opinion. In fact, too often doctors make mistakes, and their patients suffer injuries, and sometimes death from these mistakes simply because they want to believe their doctor is the expert and the authority when it comes to medical advice, and their well-being.
