As our environment and our habits are changing people are suffering from different types of problems amongst which some are serious and some are not. At times situation is not as pathetic as it is shown by the doctors because of which the ultimate end that gets affected is that of patients. Whether it is a surgery or a medical treatment, an intelligent patient will take a second or even a third opinion. But some people believe in first test and do whatever his or her doctor says. It can be because of money related problems as it is not possible for everyone to handle the cost of more than one check-up but for them too there are solutions rather than blinding believing one.
The people that have money problems or those that are not satisfied by what their doctor said have choice of checking with health-related websites to see whether his or her health condition is listed with possible solutions or not. Often, a line of treatment looks simple but suspicious as some doctors want to use their expensive gadgets rather than simple techniques and charge exorbitantly. This may sound unethical because doctors are believed to save their patient at minimum cost they can but this does not happen which is an unfortunate reality.
We need to have faith in doctors but not blind faith and checking with some other doctors or surgeons before undergoing a surgery or a costly line of treatment always pays. Double confirmation from a reliable source is never bad. Having a trusted doctor who can offer a proper guidance is very important but some doctors are rude and unfriendly who stops patients from asking questions. But, even if your doctor behaves rudely and says no, you should not hesitate to ask questions to your doctor. All patients should interact with their doctors and try to clear all their doubts and misconceptions so that they can go for peaceful and tension-free surgery.
Before visiting a doctor, we tend to panic and do not ask the doctor or just search the net and end up confused. So, it is always better to interact with the doctor because at times problems may not look major but reality comes out to be something else. So, one should be his or her own doctor or I should one should always avoid self-treatment if possible and consult his or her doctor.If you find doctor suspicious as at times we think problem is not big and in reality also they are not but doctor unnecessarily exaggerates the situation in order to make money. So, one should not hesitate in taking double confirmation if he has any doubt on doctor especially when it is about surgeries or big operations. Some operations may be useless and they can also show some side-effects if they were not required so if not for all at least for big operations you should not forget or neglect various other options.
