Know Your Doctor
# 1 : Thursday 29-7-2010 @ 09:20
Do you? I have to go to the doctor this morning, I've been avoiding it as I didn't like my old doctor, so am heading to a new one to start all over again. And it got me thinking about the amount of people who rarely if ever go to a doctor.

Do you have any qualms about going to the doctor for each cough or are you like me and will only go when something falls off?

I've had some real crappy neurologists who were completely inept. I have a good one now, but I don't trust many neurologists anymore. And I hate going.

I need to go too a doctor, to discuss Gender issues! But do i have to go through my gp, i have been putting it off and i need to discuss it with someone!

The new doctor was lovely, even while giving bad news. I think I'll keep her.

Do you have to go through your Gp for everything, I want to see a consultant about something else and i dont want the gp to know about it! Its very Personal, anyone out there can tell me?
# 6 : Thursday 29-7-2010 @ 14:45
If it's medical you will probably need a referal to see a consultant. If you dont want your gp to know about it then get a new gp that will do the referal for you. Is there a help line you can ring?

I have been looking everywhere, one site that deals with is gone and the other says see your gp! God, its frustrating! I have to deal with it before it or i drive my self nuts!

I've been very fortunate in terms of my GP. I've been with him for 15 years now, he's fully aware of my gay sexuality and my health record. There's very little I wouldn't tell him in terms of any health issue and I think it's very important to have as open and honest a relationship with your doctor as possible.

The only gripe I have about my doctor is that he sometimes thinks I worry about my health unnecessarily and can be a bit dismissive when I go to himabout something. Also, the new junior doctor at his practice is woeful in terms of having a good "bedside" manner.

See a GP, it needn't be your local GP however.

My GP growing up... excellent.

GP now? Crap.

Now seriously thinking of returning to the original GP, despite the fact that he works a good bit away from me.

My own GP, who I have had since I was about 13 is amazing, so thorough and interested.
# 12 : Wednesday 25-8-2010 @ 04:07
i love my GP. he is a lovely man.
but the other day i went to him for help and he sent me away with a sick note for work. i just took it. now i realise he should have done more. i am quite annoyed at him now putting it mildly. i very seldom ask for help so when i do i expect to be helped.

My doc is great. She has fixed me more than once.
# 14 : Wednesday 25-8-2010 @ 18:37
I'm not mad on my current GP. He thinks I'm a bit of a hypochondriac.
But the guy can draw blood amazingly. I've impossible to find veins and he's really gentle.

My doc is retiring soon, and she seems to have stopped bothering really.
