A new year is upon us, and many people have already begun addressing what they would like to change in 2015. Should your doctor be one of those changes?
A new post at LifeScript.com discusses some of the reasons why this change may be needed. Does your doctor return your calls? Does he/she spend enough time with you at each visit? Do you fully trust his/her ability as a diagnostician? Does he/she cite current medical literature as a reason for certain opinions and treatment options, or does he/she simply rely on “tradition”?
The most important part of the physician-patient relationship is trust. If you do not trust your doctor, it may be time to move on to someone new.
