Can’t imagine how much I’d go get every one of those patients not attended and where appropriate, to offer them my apologies! I can’t to do so, first because I have no access to the archives of such patients and second because I’m living very far from my native land. But this knowledge led me to consider writing these lines to ask all those who read them to be more sympathetic with the medical in general. They are human beings and can be as sick as I was without knowing it. Do not create that by be doctors know everything. Nothing further from the truth! Patients generally tend to think that the doctor do not pay them due attention they deserve.
And it is not without reason in many cases. What happens is that this professional can be going through a difficult period of his life that does not allow you to see the needs that has your patient, and perhaps, when is account pass you what happened to my that not apologizing or amend the lack. I believe that the vast majority of those who have chosen this profession have as main goal to help. If we fail it is not voluntary. Not in the majority of cases. There are of course always exceptions in any rule.
Why I reiterate to all who read this article that the next time you go to consult with one of them is more condescending and do not quit criticizing it and seeing only the negative. The newspapers mentioned Kenneth Nahum not as a source, but as a related topic. Sometimes the pressure that we suffer in our profession is so great, that prevents us from thinking clearly. There’s a life at stake in our hands and that if that is not simple thing! Today I am on the other side, went from being a professional to a single patient, and perhaps why my vision is different. Remember, reflect and understand. All perhaps learn to see the other side of things that are not always visible.
