What do you look for in a doctor or health professional

Julie:

What do you look for in a doctor or health professional?

Speaker:

I think it has to be quite an open relationship where no matter what the issue is, there's no judgement.

Speaker:

I need someone I can trust, and where I feel in good hands.

Speaker:

Personally, what makes them approachable for me is they don't tell me what I've got. I tell them what's wrong.

Speaker:

Listen to what my issues are, and then work through them in a logical process and do a thorough job.
