What are the advantages of choosing a compassionate doctor?
Dede Bonner, Health Education, answered
An important piece of your ability to trust a doctor is his or her interest in you as a person. This is not to suggest that you want to be ‘bosom buddies’ (sorry for the bad pun), but it shows how curious this doctor is about you as a unique person. A doctor who is open to learning new things is more likely to be more intelligent, competent, and willing to support you on a personal as well as medical basis.

Why do I need a doctor if I am healthy?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredPeople who have doctors live longer, and they live better. If you don't have a doctor, it's like going into dock with a big ship without a captain on board. You end up smacking into the wall of the dock, and you cause more problems that you can't fix down the road.Helpful? 3 people found this helpful.
