Impatient Appointments

Does your doctor sit down and listen intently, or does it seem like her mind is wandering? Impatient practitioners can make you feel like your health concern isn't important or as though they're completely inconvenienced by your presence. Whether you're there because your toddler has a sore throat or your kid hasn't been feeling himself lately, a good doctor sits, makes eye contact, asks questions, and above all, listens to your answers to work out a diagnosis and treatment plan.
