    Went to see a Doctor yesterday,the normal gentleman i see was off sick,Lady at the front desk asks if i would mind to see someone else,so i see this Indian Lady Doctor ,sit down she ask why i come in,
    just need some blood pressure pills,normal Doctor just takes 1 minute in and out quick easy,but not this time the Doctor takes the blood pressure,then gets out the sugar level jab,looks into my eyes,alls ,then do the blood tests urine ,,so i said iv'e got this far and i'm happy,and the Ladies reply was you have to aim higher in life with getting older,just because your 60 does not mean you give up in life,all i said was i'm trying to get too 70,again she said you can go beyond that age,wish all Doctors were as positive as that..

    Geez @willair she's just made your retirement plans so much grimmer by making those $$ last longer (gotta buy another IP to cover the extra few years).

    Wow, that doctor actually sounds like she cares, quite rare, good on her for actually really trying to help you, the right way.
    Don't they normally just prescribe you medicine and tell you to come back in a couple of months?

    That's all i need ,i just go back every three months get the paperwork for the chemist ..
    But once you find a Doctor that cares it gives you a quick backup if something does go wrong..

    Sometimes it pays off to see a different Dr. My mother's Dr. was on holidays when Mum needed more ointment for an ulcer on her heel....had it about 5 or 6 years. The temp Dr. says that looks like cancer, better get a second opinion. Mum was really ticked off and grudgingly went to the specialist. Yep, a cancer. One month treatment with a nasty ointment to burn it away and it was gone. Healed perfectly. Needless to say, Mum changed Drs.

    I think if you do your work with a little bit of compassion and genuine care, clients would notice.
