What To Do If Your Relationship With Your Doctor Is Not Ideal

Next » « Previous


Just like any relationship, your relationship with your doctor may have its ups and downs.

 If problems arise in your relationship with your doctor, see if they can be worked out.

  • Talk them through with your doctor. 
  • If there is no time for a discussion in a normal session, ask when you can speak with the doctor at another time – in person or on the telephone.

 If you cannot get a satisfactory resolution of the problem, consider whether it is enough of a problem to cause you to look for a new doctor.There’s no right or wrong here. Only what works for you.

  • Think through your criteria in choosing the kind of doctor in question (for instance, primary care doctor or specialist.)  
  • Consider what other doctors may be available to you. 

If you feel your doctor has harmed you, and you want to do something about it, there are alternatives to consider.
