20. I am very fortunte

I have several doctors that I have actually trusted with my life. They have saved my life several times. My Internist, saved me from Staph Sepsis pneumonia, among other illnesses and my Neurosurgeon saved me from a life threatening injury to my cervical spine and a traumatic brain injury. In the past, my former Gynecologist performed life saving surgery when I was hemorrhaging. Unfortunately he is no longer in practice.

I even found an ER doc who was compassionate and competent. Unfortunately he left that particular job.

There are other doctors in my life who I would entrust with my life. They have participated in my care, but have never been put to the test.

I agree that finding competent, caring professionals is essential and difficult. I am a Clinical Psychologist and a Health Psychologist. My dissertation was on a related topic. I see many people who have this very problem and who have suffered at the hands of incompetent, greedy, uncaring, untrustworthy doctors.

This problem seems to be growing. Do yourself a big favor and interview doctors until you find one that is trustworthy, competent, and caring. Your life may depend on it.
