Doctor Frustration

February 11, 2007 at 3:44 pm

When Nate was first diagnosed, Nate’s first Neuro was really nice at the hospital. That was the only place he was nice.
When we first went to his office after Nate was transferred to a convalescent hospital he was a different person.
I asked him a lot of questions and told him I had learned a lot from this website.
He got this horrified look on his face and proceeded to tell me that was a very dangerous thing!
I could not believe what I was hearing. He was so defensive!
He obviously has the idea that the only correct info about gbs comes from him only, no one else.
He has no idea the comparison between what he told us and the firsthand info on this site and many others. They have nothing at all to do with him or what he knows.
After that every time we went to him he was defensive or didn’t want to spend much time with us.
I was so glad when we moved Nate out of the hospital and home where we could change insurances and find our own doctors.
It amazes me that some doctors think they are so absolutely intellegent and so elite and that no one else knows what they do and that eveyone except their colleagues is beneath them.
They still put on their pants the same way we do and have the same bodily functions that we do.
