Sometimes, doctors are completely wrong.

I told him my daughter was getting married in a few weeks and was it so serious or could we wait until after her wedding. He looked at me and said if it was what he thought it was then worrying about the wedding was the least of my problems. I had the test done and everything was ok and I never went back to him again. Imagine how frightened he made me. I think it was just to give business to the MRI dept.

    I HATE that kind of paternalistic crap! If some doc wants me to go have some test, I have the absolute right to know why -- it's my body, after all. I would have changed doctors, too. I now see a female physician's assistant as my primary, and she's got more sense (and compassion) in her little finger than most doctors I've ever seen (with the exception of the orthopedic surgeon who replaced my hips -- he was wonderful about explaining, offering alternatives, etc., so I understood exactly what was going on every step of the way).

    Doctors respond to symptoms. If you don't get a good connection with your MD (I am currently in this situation!) you could go for along time with a nagging ailment.
    It's nice to visit with a professional, there because _you_ are hiring his/her time, but you sought the time for a specific reason and starting out we need to report it accurately and consisly. But then the MD/GP has to listen with care and knowledge.
