Re: [IP] no dr will see me



I hate to be rude, but I think everybody has covered everything on this topic.

 would you have been refused / blacklisted / turned away maybe because the doc
thought you would file lawsuit due to failing health because of not taking care
of yourself ? dunno.... maybe a thought

It means taking their advise into consideration, however some Drs want you 
to take it blindly. When I was in the hospital for shingles the Dr 
prescribed heparin to prevent clots even though I was mobile. This caused my 
site to become black and blue and bleed profusely when I removed it. I 
called my Endo and he advised me to refuse the heparin which I did. The Dr 
at the hospital the told me I had no right to refuse what he prescribed (A 
lie) and that he was going to discharge me for not following his orders. I 
called the patient advocate who helped me get another Dr assigned. Doctors 
make mistakes and some think they are G-d so YOU must take responsibility 
for your care.

Doesn't taking responsibility for your treatment also mean WILLINGLY dealing 

with someone whose advice you're willing to follow after YOU pay them 
money?? 
If you visit the same Dr. more than once and don't follow the advice you're 
paying him/her to give you, then it's both a waste of their time and your 
money. I don't think the DR's have time to waste, so I don't see a 
problem 
here. 

Yes, a lack of other providers complicates things, but you can't blame this 
on 
the Dr.

I don't believe you have to follow Dr's orders just because they say so. My 
Endo at the Joslin tells me that he gives me advice but that I am in charge 
of my treatment. I have a real problem with Drs that think they are G-ds. 
You need to take responsibility for your treatment.
