    Sure, If you want you can add this is from Someone who has worked in a pharmacy for a while and that I have to directly deal with some of these issues.
    Thank you so much

    If I had to study 5 years, work long hours for a salary which isn't high enough only to listen to someone who had just read an article and is insistent that they have some condition they don't have. I wouldn't only be unpleasant. I would have little patience for hypochondriacs and **** talkers like you. Please shut up.

    I'm very sorry, I think that I'm not getting my point across well, what I'm trying to say is that there is a slight lack of empathy between patients and doctors.
    its a 2 way thing
    patients have no respect towards doctors
    and a few doctors don't realise what effects their procedures are having on their patients, for example being scared of getting an injection.
    I hope I've clarified the issue, and I'm sorry for appearing rude to doctors.
    you are also right in loosing your patience with those who have no respect for doctor.
    I hope everything is ok now

    I'm very sorry to hear about your dad passing on. But I just wanted to say that you have worded what I've been trying to say - some doctors don;'t have empathy.
    I think it could have been that the consultant was quite old (at least 50 I think) so was quite hardened to things at that point but considering when we met I was 15 he might have figured it was quite young for me to be worried about dying and that a bit of reassuring words would help. Fortunately my heart was in perfect shape and I try to look after myself so that won't happen to me

    Why do you say this? What's your evidence for making such a declarative statement?

    Your debate will be over before it starts if you've got nothing to back this up with.
    It is just clickbait and not the OP's view.

    thanks, I didn't think about that.
    I guess I just got the notion from an article I looked at

    Some doctors are nice, and some are really nasty. Most of the ones where i have to go are unfortunately abysmal. The disregard everything you say as either your age or a virus. They told my dad he didn't have a heart condition that he had been diagnosed with years before even though the specialist in the hospital said he definitely did. They keep trying to tell my brother that his epilepsy is his own fault and hes faking it even though in scans he has clear brain damage and a tone of other stuff. I'm guessing there are some nice doctors out there, they just don't seem to be near me.

    5 rejections for medicine?
    Spoiler:

    Doctors generally are really sympthaetic and noce people. they work long hours and love their careers (most do)
    I understand that this is a joke but you can only apply for 4 places at medicine through UCAS XD

    On a serious note, I know quite a few doctors (some family, some friends and some acquaintances) and they are all generally pretty nice people from my experience.

    As in most professions, different doctors have different levels of people skills. They're obviously important, but I would rather a somewhat 'clinical' doctor that gets the right diagnosis than one that sympathises with me, especially for a serious condition. I don't think that it would be easy to go through all the training and work as a doctor without wanting to help people. Many see distressing cases, so it isn't surprising that some distance themselves from the patient. Too much genuine sympathy would take a heavy toll IMO.

    It depends on who. One of my family members passed away from cancer. The doctor gave so many medications to the point it killed them. The treatments that were given made them worse. Idk

    I know that, but it still needs to be backed up if it's going to be argued. If there's no evidence that this if the case then there's no debate to be had in the first place.

    I thought that was the point? It appears to be their homework, so post it on TSR and come back 2 hours later for all the answers?

    to clarify here is what I think;
    Doctors are wonderful people. I mean they spend half a decade at university in order to learn skills which will save people's lives. However, some people don't appreciate them enough, which I guess is where the original statement has come from (again, before I get people throwing synonyms about me being obnoxious, my teacher created this statement to comment on, I definitely didn't do this on purpose. If I knew how to I would edit the title ).
    However, the issue I have with doctors is sometimes there is a lack of empathy. Don't get me wrong, this does not involve all doctors, just a few. And I believe it is not only doctors who have this issue, but all professions. However, for the purpose of getting my work for medsoc done, I'm concentrating on medical professionals.
    Now I know that the article I have posted above is based on american research, however, I feel it has some relevance in this debate. I think that the idea it addresses, the fact that some doctors do not even get to know there patients properly, can affect the relationship between both doctors and patients. However, I just want to point out that I am not saying ALL doctors do this.
    your life is being put into someone else's hands. wouldn't you want to be able to trust this person? in order to trust someone you would want to see that they are relatable ,(If you don't agree with me here, let me know, because I'm not entirely sure how to word this). I believe that with such long shifts, and relatively low pay has resulted in doctors not wanting to create this relationship with their patients; they are being drained which results in them appearing unrelatable. Perhaps you can link this idea with the junior doctors. how do we expect them to do their jobs properly if they are given such long shifts?
    And then there are people who have been saying that they would not be able to tolerate with those who are rude to doctors. I have to say that I agree with them. After all, they are the professionals, so I'm sure they know what they are doing. I believe that they cause the patient-doctor relationship to diminish, which again results in a lack of empathy on both sides of the realtionship.

    I haven't done justice to every point of the argument, but hopefully this resolves the issue that I haven't put my own opinion in this debate

    I get what you mean. At times their medical degree proves useless when they don't even know what they're doing. For one problem I had to see 6 doctors and all of them were useless.
