Of late I have noticed a lot of negative comments being made in social media with regard to the helpfulness of doctors appointments, particularly Rheumatology appointments. This got me thinking, surely all experiences can’t be negative, and the positive ones are just going unmentioned? I would hate to think that our Rheumatologist’s are failing us, or maybe I’m just being too much of optimist?
So in order to put some light on the subject I’m asking for your help. I have made a quick (anonymous) poll, so that we can see just how helpful, constructive, or otherwise, our appointments really are. Just rememeber, having a flare, or symptoms being uncontrolled does not nessesarily constitute a bad appointment, it’s how this is dealt with that matters. Just how often do you come away thinking “that was all that could be done”, or “I couldn’t have asked for more”?
Please feel free to expand in the comments section below the poll should you feel comfortable to do so.
All your feedback is welcome. However; I do ask that no names of specific Doctors be mentioned please.
I look forward to your responses.
