Patients are not always their best advocates.

    Patients are not always their best advocates. No wonder the public is in deep.........they cannot think well. Patients Give Doctors High Marks For Prescribing Antibiotics and rated themselves happiest with their doctor's visit when they got an antibiotic after seeking care for a respiratory tract infection, such as a common cold, whether they needed it or not. https://n.pr/2DMVq5q

    My first 2 comprehensive visits with new patients are spent mainly deprogramming. When they finally stop saying, "but what about...?" and "I was always told..." together we begin at the basics and start a fresh build. Within 2 weeks, most know more than all the doctors they've ever visited. Patients only know what they know and what they know has come from their doctors, media, blogs, neighbors, relatives... About as much useful data to fill a thimble. JK, I appreciate your passion!

    It bothers me when I visit a medical school or residency program and see so much talent that is in the pursuit of myth. I think we have a duty to alter that trajectory. The best way to engage the mind is teaching it how to think and not what it should be thinking about. The same is true for the public

    Yes, as a practitioner, seeing all the energy that is spent in "pursuit of myth", is extremely frustrating. I am by far not perfect at this but I agree, we have a duty to alter that. A great way, I find, is to relate to my clients regarding the train of thought that comes up, which they express...meaning I can say "Yup, I used to think in that way as well..." etc.
