Pinkeye,
I have a different experience with doctors. My family had a really cool doctor while I was growing up. I'll call him "Doctor M." He saw all of us, and he was genuinely nice and concerned not just about us, but all his patients. My sister worked in his office and babysat his kids, and he would make extra time for my family if we needed an urgent appointment. He called to check on us if someone was having a serious issue or surgery. So it was very nice. My sister said that he treated ALL his patients well. Of course he couldn't develop deep friendships with all of them, but there was a lot of respect and friendliness and concern. The patients liked him so much that his office would fill with presents (mostly food and baked goods) at the holidays.

My current doctor, while not having the "Dr. M" kind of relationship with me, is cordial and kind. She seems concerned. I'm confident that she never joke about me or says mean things with other doctors.

I can understand that doctors get overwhelmed by patients and illness sometimes, but I really have met nice doctors. I have one best friend who is becoming a doctor and another who IS a doctor, and they are fantastic people!

I'm sorry you saw the ugly side of medicine, but there is a beautiful side, too.

Take care!
JenStar
