Who here has experienced explaining your symptoms to a bored looking doctor who is quick to judge or dismiss your words? We’ve experienced this several times and it just ended up with wasted money and frustration. A good doctor will take time to really listen to their patient. They will hold off questions until you are finished with your description.
A doctor who listens is one that you can trust.
Easy to Reach
There are some doctors that are harder to reach than most. The thing is even if they are not as busy there are those that are quite difficult to really get a hold of. This is why it is ever important to find a doctor that is easy to reach whether by phone or text or even email.
A good doctor is one that won’t make it hard for you to get a hold of them for your health concerns.
Respects Your Time

A good doctor is one that values and respects the time of their patients.
