I know that not all doctors are bad but the bad ones definitely stand out when they talk down to you and make you feel so stupid and try to tell you there is nothing wrong with you. I know from experience that those memories stay with you and they do damage.
Nate has a really kind, caring orthopedic doc now that was referred by our nieghbor. He is very interested in helping Nate as much as he can and that is very refreshing and it makes Nate feel good, which is the most important thing.
Our primary care doctor is old and kind but doesn’t have a lot of knowledge about gbs.
He is a good listener though and wants to learn from Nate just what is going on with him. That is very important to us all.
Since I brought Nate home, we have had much better experiences with doctors than when he was in the hospital. Even the inhouse doctor was very lacking.
She hardly ever saw him, then when she did she didn’t do much for him.
We need to find more docs here, and hopefully they will be good ones.
You, having been thru GBS will most likely be very patient and understanding.
You will be a great asset to the medical field.
