Doesn’t care enough about the patient to give an honest assessment of their condition.
If a patient’s situation realistically only leaves them a few months to live, then as a doctor, you should have the courage to tell them that. When you tell a man in his 80’s he needs chemo and radiation and he spends that last few months of life sick and all you have to say is, oh sorry the treatment didn’t work, leaving him so sick, that what little time he has left, he was is in misery. You’ve given him false hope because you were too much of a coward to tell him the truth. You took the easy way out for yourself so you didn’t’ have to talk about death. He had little time to process what was happening because he was shuffled from treatment to the hospital because the treatment made him so sick that he no time to work through what was going on or to spend any quality time with him family. Once it was determined the treatment didn’t work, you didn’t even bother telling the family for several days because you didn’t want spoil your weekend. You denied his dignity, you denied his family time with him, and you denied his right to choose how to spend the last few months of his life.

  • This was the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor visit. First of all I saw the NP Amber , she made me feel like I was a bother to her . As I sat in the chair she told me to stand and pull my pants down then she took three steps back and bent over to pretend to look at the affected area, which made me feel like she didn't want to be near me. I said pretend to looks at because there was no way she could have seen the problem from that position. Then she talked with the nurse to tell he...

  • On 1/24/18 my mother had an elective heart valve repair, the surgery went very wrong, what should have taken four hours took nearly ten hours and my mother needed 22 pints of blood.

They inserted a trachea in the ICU where she lay in a coma like state for 50+ days, she had three seizures and the auto blood pressure cuff burst open her arm artery. This took an additional two surgeries to repair. A...
