I respect doctors a lot but sometimes I feel that doctors are trying to give you the news too lightly to relieve patients fears ... Am I wrong ?

In brief: Not always

It is not easy to explain to patients why we think and do certain things.
For example, if you have neuropathy in your feet, there can be literally hundreds of causes, so if I order tests, I cannot give you answers right away. Even after tests, I still may not know the answer. If there is bad news, at some point, it will have to be told to you.
