How did you get THAT from my post? :-|
I have been sick, even been in surgery a couple of times. Never did the doctor need to hear my life story or all my beliefs to cure me. A good bedside manner is a luxury but a necessity is competence and confidence. That is what I put a premium on.
Bedside manner can be left to the nurses. If you say something relevant to your treatment then it's something different, but talking about homeopathy and crystals etc will, understandably, and drive a doctor up a wall.
