- 0Jun 15, '02 by oramar GuideI know what you mean. I have had my family doctor for many years. He has calmly worked on my health problems with me for many years. Sometimes he is right, sometimes he is wrong. If something appears to be wrong we back up and and try again. I don't think I would ever sue him for the mistakes, everybody is wrong about somethings sometimes. I particularly appreciate the fact that when I get a little wacky about feeling poorly he is calmly acceptant.

....I may tend to type the negatives a lil more than the positives just because I find you all so supportive and as a relatively new nurse I find some things shocking and are unsure how to handle them...
I agree - we would be friends and would be having just a little too much fun on the floor together! :chuckle
- 0Jun 15, '02 by mattsmom81Wendy, that doc was innapropriate and you handled him well. It is not the nurses' responsibility to make sure he is doing his job, and I have said this many times to docs.
Agree with everyone who posted here...this doc needs to wake up and smell the coffee.
We're ALL overworked and underpaid.
