Do you have a doctor that you can trust with your life? [View all]

Lot of people do not understand how important it is to be established with a doctor that you can trust this well.

Let me give you an example.

My daughter has been real sick for going on three weeks. After several visits to a doctor and his associate who my daughter was not established with and after three trips to the emergency room they just found out today she has pneumonia. That should have been found the first visit to her doctor. He should have ordered a chest x-ray and diagnosed her three weeks ago. But he didn't.

Now how the hell could that happen in 2012?

Well obviously she has a medical doctor who would be better suited to working at digging ditches. She just didn't know that until now because she has always felt pretty good so she didn't see the need to find a doctor who she could really trust and develop a close trusting relationship with like I do.

I have had two doctors in my life who I felt I could trust with my life. The first one was really old is dead now. But the second one is about my age so hopefully this one will outlive me. Because I never have had any doubt that this current doctor was always looking out for my best interests. If that wasn't the case I would have found another doctor who I could trust.

Got to have that. I can't stress this enough. Because one of these days the chances are you are going to need a doctor who you can completely trust. And without having that your pretty much screwed.

Just a little advice for those who haven't considered this. Better do it now before you find yourself in deep stuff some day. Don't wait until the chips are down to find out your doctor is an idiot. That could be fatal.
