Respect The Patient
Common Courtesy is a conventional but unwritten code of practice followed by members of any of certain professions or groups when dealing with strangers, or informal acquaintances.
Do you ever get the impression that your doctor doesn’t respect what you are saying?
Do you ever wonder if your doctor isn’t taking your symptoms seriously, isn’t willing to listen?
The reality of human health is that you get sick outside of normal visits you make to talk to a doctor. Important questions often come up between visits to the doctor, possibly regarding side effects of medication or a change in symptoms. The problem is that it’s nearly impossible to receive accurate and helpful answers to questions if you are not in the room taking the time to talk to a doctor.
If you do need to talk to a doctor outside of your normal visit, the call to a medical office will result in either a generic answer or the answer that comes back will confirm that something got lost in translation. The doctor actually calling to talk to a patient is such a rarity these days; instead we all get the less informed assistant who may not know the nuances of test results or may not be trained at all.
The question is “why” is it so hard to get a doctor to have the common courtesy to return our call? Everything again falls back to the hierarchy of money making the machine run, and there isn’t the time for a doctor to take fifteen minutes for every patient who has a question about health. In the bureaucracy of cash it’s patient that gets the short end of the equation in the respect department, putting little to no value on how that patient feels after they talk to a doctor in person.
There needs to be a way to move beyond a system that forces doctors to treat patients like cattle, and the supplemental telemedicine program MD247 provides manages to take the bad things out of medical treatment.
MD247 doctors and telemedicine program members are legitimately given the opportunity to connect, allowing a patient the chance to talk to a doctor without that doctor worrying about time and overhead. Members in the MD247 telemedicine program also have the good fortune of NEVER needing to worry that someone who is not qualified will handle their call. MD247 ONLY ever with board certified doctors and registered nurses nationwide.
