Changing GPs
 
# 1 : Monday 20-8-2012 @ 15:36
 
 
How often have you had to change GPs?

Me? Several times.

The new doctor seems to be on the ball! The relevant scan today confirmed her suspicion as to the nature of my relative's condition. (from what I saw on the screen, it bleeped up results.)

Of course, we'll have to wait and see what the doctor tells us re. results from the scan on Wednesday, but from what I see...

and the previous doctor prescribed Solpadeine and gel???

So... I'm glad we changed doctors.

Any stories about reasons you decided to change doctors? (If you did?)

Have never had to do it, but i'm seriously considering it. My GP is a total knob with nothing but dollar signs in his eyes.

I changed GPs twice because they just want to offer me pill after pill and not helping me with my problem. I use to play rugby and when I finished playing rugby I got my coaching badges so could coach part time and work the other days. But I lately got this arm pain where I could not lift anything and the pain was so bad that I could not do my work right and so went to the first GP and he just wanted to give me pill after pill not listening to me at all. I told him could it be rugby related. And he then said it might be but pain killers will help and then wanted to offer me sleeping pills as well. I have never been ill in my life and never taken pills and refused them. I went and saw a second GP and the same thing he only wanted to off load tablets and not help me. I told him that he was the second GP that was just trying to off load tablets and not help me and I walked out of the room.

I had my family GP everybody used until I was old enough to change him myself.
Have my current one since. Hes a very nice man and if theres something amiss I see a specialist. So I only really use him for the likes of chest infections and for a referrel letter if I need to see a consultant.

You could have tried to save €200 and get an MRI done. Then you'd know exactly what you're dealing with.

Most GPs these days are reluctant to prescribe sleepers and benzos. And if they do it should only be for a short period. Their rate of prescribing is monitered carefully.

Yes was thinking that MRI would have solved my problem but the first GP was near my work so decided to go on my lunch break. So will go for a MRI and see if they can get to the root of the problem.

I've had the same GP since 1995. The previous doctor, our family doctor, was useless. The original GP I had from '95 onwards has since retired but the doctor who replaced him is very good. She is caring but very professional.

Really happy with my GP, and the whole clinic. They operate from a primary care centre and honestly everyone I've dealt with there, with the exception of one recepitionist, has been wonderful.

I went through a good few before I found her though.

It is shocking the amount of pills they are giving out per day and it does not even bother them that they are causing more harm then good.
