Why should I dislike a patient? Let me think.......
These are some of the reasons for disliking a patient.
I dislike a patient
1.who walks in [as if going to a movie] leaving his previous medical records safe at home making me do all the guessing about his previous illnesses
2.who gives you the diagnosis himself/herself [see my blog entry 'self diagnosis']
3.who talks ill of his/her previous doctor imagining that it will gain my good will.
4.who fakes the severity of his/her illness to jump the Que at my clinic
5.the one that never take the medicines as prescribed explaining that his/her neighbour[or a friend?] had told that it is over dose.
6.the one who refill the prescription [containing medicines which should not be used long term] again and again with out consultation
7.the one who never take pains to come to the clinic but rely on telephonic consultation.
8.the one who never do the tests I ordered but just want prescription for medicines.
9.the one who falsely blame me for not keeping the date of followup appointment [saying falsely I was away on that date or the Clinic telephone was down].
10.the one who had come for his wife's illness but want me to check his blood pressure and give some free advise regarding which Blood Pressure medicine is the best.
Now please tell me the reasons for disliking a doctor by a patient.
