There is nothing worse than a bad doctor. You know the kind: they want your money, but don’t have time for you.
My mother recently began seeing a doctor that I recommended based on the recommendation of some friends. Thought I’d tell her about him. On her first visit, she loved him. But on the second one: He was very impatient with her, somewhat condescending, didn’t listen, and we didn’t like his staff.
My mother is 74 years old and it’s very important for doctors to take time with the elderly. Mama didn’t want to go back to him after the second visit and I told her after a third appointment was scheduled that if he hadn’t changed in his doctor-to-patient manners; then she should seek another doctor.
While thinking about this, I just happened to look online about reporting a bad doctor. You report them to the state medical board. And also, you can post on WebMD as well.
I found this article in U.S. News that opened my eyes and would you know…my mother’s current doctor has over half of these traits.
