Migraine Awareness Month #20: "Run, Forrest, Run!"

Describe the approach you think is best when it's time to more on to a new doctor.

One simple word...Honesty!

If you aren't happy with the physician you are seeing, then tell them why they aren't suiting your needs. You are you best advocate & should NEVER have to stay w/ a doctor who isn't helping you. Believe me, I've been through plenty of "Here take this drug & I'll see you in 6 weeks", type of doctor. Or my favorite "You have so many headache types, I just don't know where to start, & what to treat". Obviously, he's right on that aspect. But he wasn't right for ME.

Stand up for yourself! Don't take any crap. If you aren't happy, tell him/ her why! But calmly & honestly. You don't need to put up with someone who isn't compassionate, isn't helpful, doesn't return phone calls, or just doesn't understand you.

Take the time & explain why you're unhappy. Who knows it might benefit the way that doctor treats his or her next patient next time.

★Hugs★ to all & "Be here now"
