Doctor Writes A Letter To Patients With A Chronic Illness

Why aren’t Medical Schools teaching a class on Doctor/Patient relationships and the insecurities and communications (and miscommunications) that happen between them?

I know it would have been a much more pleasant experience for me all those years, if a doctor would have had the guts to just say, “I’m sorry… I can’t help you. Please find a new doctor.”

It would have been so much easier than their favorite go-to, “Go see a psychiatrist”.

After the scores of “insecure” doctors I have been to over the years, I think I just might, thank you.
