I’ve done it and I bet a large percentage have done it. I see often here on our site people that are more than willing to soundly criticize their medical professionals, after all doctors are not perfect.
That being said they are the best thing that we have going for us, they are the ones with the learning and experience to prolong our lives. Why am I here singing the praises of doctors, I’m sure you have guessed by now that my life has recently been significantly impacted by the diligence of a member of my medical team.
I am talking about the nurse practitioner at my GP’s office, by going beyond what I would consider the status quo she put into motion a chain of events that identified a growing health problem, a problem that had not yet exhibited any symptoms. I now have a chance to delay or even stop the progress of a serious diabetic complication.
I hope that I will never again fall in with the complaining crowd, If I do will someone be kind enough to tell me to sit down and shut up, because good medical professionals deserve better than the treatment they sometimes receive here.
