what do patients expect from doctors

  • not judgemental about their life choices or what got them in this mess in the first place
  • they are coming for options and solutions, and working in partnership to discover whats wrong and if there is something to fix it
  • you need to elicit information from them to be able to recommend solutions that they might be able to get on board with (and also not offer things that are impossible for them)
  • they expect to get back to full health right away
  • privacy and confidentiality
  • gentle, not painful
  • not be embarrassed by anything they bring up – keep a straight face
