The Next Step

October 27th, 2020

Thus, in my last occupational period stopped going to my patients and their parents, the needs that went beyond prescribing a medication or try to find a diagnosis. Only I saw it almost a year after I retired when I started reading about the syndrome and could self-diagnose and understand my change. Can not imagine how I would go for each of those patients who did not attend as they should, to offer my apologies! I can not do so, first because I have no access to the files of these patients and secondly because I live too far from my homeland. This knowledge drove me to write these lines to ask all those who read them to be more understanding with physicians in general. They are human beings and can be as sick as I was without knowing it. Do not think that because doctors know everything.

Nothing is further from the truth! Patients in general tend to think that the doctor did not pay proper attention they deserve. And is not that they are right in many cases. What happens is that the practitioner may be going through a difficult period in your life that you can not see the needs that his patient, and perhaps, when you realize you no matter what happened to me can not apologize or amend failure. I believe the vast majority of those who have chosen this profession have as its main goal, "Help." If we fail is not voluntary. Not in most cases. Of course there will always be exceptions like in any rule.

Therefore I reiterate to all who read this article which is more lenient the next time you see one of them and not criticizing it out and seeing only the negative. Sometimes the pressure we experienced in our profession is so great that it prevents us from reasoning clearly. There is a life at stake in our hands and that if it is not something simple! Today I'm on the other hand, went from being a professional, a simple patient and perhaps that's why my vision is different. Remember, reflect upon and understand. Perhaps we all learn to see the other side of things that are not always visible.
