Medical Doctors and Patients


Do you know what this bag holds? For some it holds death for others it holds life.

Who is a Medical Doctor? If you don't know then here is the link. Who is a patient?

A doctor is someone we visit when we are ill. I know some are good and some are literally playing with patient's life. I have heard plenty of stories here in Kuwait. But everyone of us has visited a doctor at some point in our life.

Below are three different examples:

A patient keeps visiting a doctor for headache for several weeks and the doctor keeps giving them pain killers. A few months later the headache becomes severe and few family friends advice that they should visit another doctor and guess what they find out? The patient had a brain tumor and is in the last stages. Few months later the person passes away!!! Here is a life is gone and the doctor is still alive. He/Her is not affected in any way and will keep working or shall I say taking more lives.

Now here is my example of visiting a good dentist. A few years back I visited Salwa clinic as my tooth was half broken and I couldn't bare the pain so went to get it taken out. Generally doctors don't even care but my conversation with her started like this ' I hate dentists' she looked at me with a smile and said 'Why? we don't bite!' and that's how it all started. She treated me so well that I was amazed. She advised me not to take out my tooth and she worked on it and did my root canal. I had several visits including on her day off she went with me to the Salmiya medical center to do my major root canal there.

And lastly here is an example of a patient who never visited doctor as she was too scared getting the treatment and when finally she collapsed and wanted to get back to a normal life it was too late. She left everything in GOD's hand from the beginning. Her both kidneys were weak and after dialyzes they found out that she had breast cancer and couldn't treat her even with chemotherapy as her body was too weak to take that strong medicine. Within 2 months a walking lady was laid to rest in peace.

So here is a peace of advise for all of us? There is nothing better than a normal and healthy life. Health is a gift. If you are ill get up and visit the doctor. If you cant visit ask someone in your family or friend for help. Don't just sit on things that you will be fine some day. If you don't feel good with one doctor visit the other one. There are plenty others in the country. Its true that GOD is the one to give us the cure apart from our medicines. But remember GOD helps those who help themselves.

I absolutely hate doctors and I always avoid going... never had a good experience with any of them in Kuwait...

But your right... avoiding doctors does not solve the problem...

I've heard so many stories about doctors who got their patients' die because of something they didn't do right!

but what about all the patient that didn't die?
you rarely hear a story of a doctor who actually did something good for his/her patient; not because they don't exist, but because it's not interesting to gossip about!

I don't deny that there are many many many bad doctors, but when it comes to my health I'll go to as many doctors as it takes.. :)
