Put away your phone

“I hate when patients text during a visit. It tells me that they do not value my time. I feel disrespected. I have left patients talking on their phone in the examining room and moved on to see another patient.” —David Broyles, DO, a doctor of family medicine who practices in the Philadelphia suburbs.

  1. These 12 important things that a doctor wants his/her patients to know are very interesting. I try, and have been doing so for years, to do almost all of them. I am a knitter, so I always take my current project with me to the doctor’s office. I also try to get there about 20 min. earlier. Quite frankly I like being there to knit (in a quiet place). If you can take something to do or read or?? it might ease the wait and the entire appointment. If you have something chronic, that you have been treated for with your doctor for awhile, then you and your doctor probably have formed some type of relationship. Doctors jobs are much different today then they used to be (more paperwork, time on the computer, and more government regulations)….so be a good patient and a good person as well, and understand that your doctor is really there for YOU!!
