Take Responsibility for Your Own Care or Pay the Consequences
A 65 year old female patient had progressive shortness of breath and acute anxiety. She and her husband went to a University affiliated hospital emergency room where the doctor noted no evidence of heart disease and omitted a chest Xray or scan. He sent her home for a cardiac stress test. Her primary care physician, noting the absence of cardiac symptoms ordered a chest scan and found a pulmonary embolism. The patient survived and will never trust an emergency room doctor again.
A patient saw an advertisement for a new form of ultrasound to reduce fat in her abdomen. She called our office and told the receptionist, “Don’t give me smartlipo or slim lipo, or cool lipo. I don’t want Velashape or Zeltique or Zerona. I just want the new ultrasound so if you don’t have it I will go somewhere else.” The patient never considered the value of examination or diagnosis.
Noted physician experts in plastic surgery and dermatology have published their opinion that the often promoted “stem cell face lift” is at this time hyperbole and does not exist as a separate procedure. Nevertheless, judging from its popularity in the lay and medical press, many patients seek this “new break-through”.
From seeking help for disease to addressing cosmetic concerns, many patients fail to follow minimal procedures for assuring responsible care for themselves and their loved ones. As examples:
• Interview physicians when there is time.
• Look at before and after results
• Check physician credentials at least using Google and hospital references
• Seek second opinions when care does not appear effective or when an elective medical/surgical path is recommended
• Use resources like Mayo Clinic and John’s Hopkins websites
• Maintain objectivity
It is nice to remember 50 years ago when a physician sat at your side and held your hand. Today we have much better diagnostic and therapeutic aides with which to intervene; but… they will only be available for those who take responsibility for their own care.
