The Doctors- Ugh

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I agree with Vallene.  Find a new doctor and don't ever go back to clueless I-phone guy.  While it's true that you can't believe everything that's on the Internet, and you won't necessarily get everything that's "possible" based on your symptoms, any doctor worth their stethoscope will at least give you the basic information.  And I would NEVER trust a doctor who won't tell you your numbers - even if they don't think you'll know what they mean - if you ask for them, they should tell you.

 

If it were me, I would call his office and demand a full copy of your medical records - to include all bloodwork, etc. so that 1) you have the numbers and 2) you can take it to a different doctor.

"Don't look things up on the internet... leave that sort of doctoring to me!" ....moron  <_<

 

I would not waste another minute or cent on the idiot. I don't expect doctors to know everything and I am not opposed to a doctor needing to look something up that s/he doesn't already know. But when the doctor spends more time staring at a web browser than listening to a patient, it's a problem. That's the sort of thing you look at for a few minutes before walking into the room, because at least then you can listen to your patient and instill a certain amount of confidence in them by not coming off as uncaring and incompetent. On top of that, a doctor who has a specific problem with having an educated patient sends up all sorts of red flags for me. Why exactly does this doctor have a problem with you knowing about what's wrong with you? I suppose it's possible that he feels threatened by the fact that you know more about it than him and he's supposed to be the one doing the doctoring, but if that's the case it makes him a piss poor doctor. Being a doctor should be about working with your patient to help them make the best decisions for themselves about their own health care. 

 

At any rate, you should find a competent, non-moronic doctor who isn't threatened by your interest in your own health and who accepts you as a partner in making choices about your health care. If there is a celiac support group in your area, they may be able to point you to any number of specialists for things with even the most tenuous links to celiac. Your regular doctor may also be able to help.

Why did you edit out your posts?  I didn't see anything wrong with them - no identifying info, nothing inappropriate, etc.  Just a legitimate complaint about a doctor that wasn't treating you well.

Hi kareng,

 

now that I have tackled the situation with co worker I guess it doesn't hurt to share. Someone at my work has been snooping here and sharing my health concerns with work people. I panicked and quickly decided to delete all the posts but could only delete this one as my next step is deleting the account. I left message with one of the moderator but I am waiting for their reply about the process of how to delete it. :(

We don't delete past posts or accounts. I don't think you gave any identifying info. If your posting name is your " real " name, Scott, admin, can change the name for you.

I hope you reported said co-worker to management! Whoever it was deserves to be fired! If this person is snooping on you, who else is in danger of being spied on?! The boss perhaps? Or any other workers whose personal information is being compromised? Or the business itself?

 

I am SO GLAD I work for myself!

People can be real morons... insensitive, cruel, jack***es.  And anyone who would yap about someone else's health issues is an idiot.

However, this is a good reminder that anything posted up here is open source and available to the public to read and do with as they wish.

On one hand, this is true. And if you are using a work computer to log in it becomes your employer's business what you're doing on their equipment whether or not you're on their time. Many large employers have ways to even track that sort of thing. On the other hand, if you are using an anonymous user ID and posting from home on your own time it isn't any of their damn business. And an employee who is snooping and trying to find out health information about another employee, that can't even be proved because it's been posted under an anonymous user is crossing a lot of lines.

 

It's a good reminder though that if you don't want your employer to know about certain aspects of your life, don't post about them from your employer's computer or under your real name online. Our online lives have real world consequences, no matter how fair or unfair we think that is.
