Disappointed

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I keep wondering why some doctors choose this profession when they appear not to have a sincere interest in their patients' well-being. Today I broke down and cried because I was tired of it all. The doctor I believed that was willing to figure out what is going on with me showed no interest in helping me and was not interested in my symptoms. I asked to be referred to rheumatologist and my appointment is in 3 months =(.

I do know exactly how you feel!  Been there.

Wow, you got a bad one!  I believe there is a significant percentage of people who choose to become a physician for the $$$$$$, the prestige, and the power/control.  Why do I believe this?  Because I worked in a teaching hospital and heard the medical students and residents voice these reasons (clearly or not so clearly).

You mention that you had thought this doc was interested in helping you.  Maybe this doc just got bad news themselves?  A spouse leaving, some kind of loss in his/her family, a bad diagnosis themselves?  Docs are people too (even if it doesn't seem like it sometimes).

Still, there ARE some really good ones out there!  I hope your new rheumatologist is one of them.  :-)

Good luck!
