Fire Your Doctor? Should I fire my doctor?

One of the most important factors in any patient-physician relationship is rapport. If the rapport isn’t there, perhaps it may be a good idea for the patient to seek another doctor.  But, there are other reasons in addition to rapport that may cause a person to fire his or her doctor.

I found an interesting article on this topic over at U.S. News and World Report. I suggest you click over to read:

    I could relate to this entry, I fired two new Doctors this year. One of them was my heart Doctor. I won’t go into the details, but it has been the year of medical test that were not really needed. There was no history between us and no Rapport on his part for sure, so, Good-bye Dr.!

    A doctor and I came to disagreement some years back when we discovered that we had no rapport. He wanted to treat the test results and I wanted him to treat the patient (me). We compromised by him giving me all of my test results, while I gave him one less patient.
