The doc I chose is in a small family practice (3 docs) in a sleepy little town and he probably has a much closer connection to his patients than the large companies.

I think one's relationship with one's doc is important...

I loved my doc. She was there for me when I lost my dad and then was diagnosed. I sang her praises to everyone. Now they won't let me switch to another doctor in the practice. Even when I had a diagnosed case of the flu last year she wouldn't even prescribe an effective cough medicine. I got so sick I went back on a day she wasn't there...when the other doctor saw I had lost 6 pounds in under a week, he gave me something to help.

The last few times I have gone to her she has done nothing to help me get better. I need to find another practice where the doctors give a damn because she has gone corporate and forgotten about patient care.

This most recent bout of illness has lasted just shy of 2 months. Dr. Girly did more for me than she did.

I hope the same doesn't happen to mine.
