Doctor should take me seriously - How can I achieve that?

Question by Guest | 2018-04-25 at 21:35

What can you do to make doctors take you more seriously? Whenever I am at the doctor's, I have the feeling that the doctor consider me a hypochondriac and do not take me and what I am saying seriously.

Sometimes I do not even manage to convey where my problems are and how much my pain really is. I'm not such a guy who whines a lot. But would still like that my doctor believes me.

Maybe that all is not your problem, but your doctor's problem. There are many doctors who treat their patients from the top down and hardly spend any time on their patients.

Maybe I would just change the doctor or try another doctor in the meantime. Maybe you just have bad luck with your doctor's medical office.

What many doctors do not like is when you have already searched the entire Internet for your diagnosis before you go to the doctor and then start with all the technical terms in the consulting room.

I would rather recommend just describing your symptoms and leaving out all your previous knowledge. This has led me personally that my doctors treat me much friendlier than before.
