Doctors vs. Patients
A while ago, I was talking to a friend about doctors, and how they often seem to lack compassionate toward their patients. I came across this article that explains the other side of the would-be obvious side to take that doctor’s absolutely should feel compassion for their patients. I thought it was interesting the way the authors seems to divide doctors into more technically inclined versus those who are more socially inclined. Although it would be ideal to have a doctor with both characteristics, the author seems skeptical as to whether or not it is possible. The author also views doctors as more or less lenient toward patients, whether or not the doctor will be more willing to perform extra tests or cater their examination more to the patients’ requests or not.
I’m wondering if you guys think if it is possible or not, to have a “all-in-one” doctor, and of course why?
Would it be a good thing to have more lenient doctors, or not? And why?
