To any doctor in general: (it's for an assignment)

Being a patient: As a kid, I had my own bout with serious illness. I remember waiting in these teeny yellow chairs at Boston Children's Hospital before a major surgery & I promised God I'd be his emissary if he got me through it. I beat the odds - 3% chance. The nurses and docs were dumbfounded by my recovery. I've tried to stay true, but have discovered that doctoring & being a healer aren't quite the same thing. ...Read more

Please also know that your description of your problem will be subjective, not objective. A dental professional may view your problem, after a thorough examination, differently than you describe. Your best alternative is to seek an opinion locally. ...Read more

Please answer! what questions should ask some one you believe has a drug problem?

Please answer! what questions should ask some one you believe has a drug problem?

Express Concern: First, there is little you can do that is effective unless the communications are about what you see and what you feel. Expressing concern and being nonjudgmental is a good start.

It depends: I would just explain to the new doctor That you're seeing him to get a second opinion as to your diagnosis and treatment to see what he would suggest.if your doctor does not ask you what the first opinion was it's up to you as to whether not you want to offer it. His evaluation might be slightly less biased if he doesn't know what the first opinion was but ultimately it probably doesn't matter. ...Read more
