We all know that doctors are very busy with people constantly waiting and needing their attention. If you get a chance to see a doctor in the office, you need to make sure that the time you spend counts. Because most people don’t, by the time they get to the office, they may not get the satisfactory responses they need.
Here are five things that your doctors won’t tell you and may not want you to know:
‘I don’t know everything.’
Your doctor won’t admit to you that they don’t know everything. For obvious reasons, they would want you to have full confidence in them and their abilities to treat your illness. In fact, sometimes doctors make you undergo many tests and prescriptions. One study demonstrated that doctors may give you too many pills than what you need.
1 out of 20 patients are misdiagnosed
Your doctor won’t tell you that as many as 1 in 20 patients are misdiagnosed. This is attributed to the large number of patients that primary care physicians have; therefore they don’t have time to talk or thoroughly examine every patient.
CPR doesn’t work
Various studies show that the failure rate of cardiopulmonary resuscitation is much as 93%-99%, that is because the vast majority of people who receive CPR can’t be saved with it. If they suffered a heart attack, they are likely to have been feeling unwell before they passed out.
Most back surgeries are unnecessary
Most people who suffer spinal compression injuries are forced to undergo back corrective surgeries, but information is coming to the forefront now reveals that such operations don’t work.
Better insurance doesn’t mean better care
Some people assume that having a better health insurance means great care will be provided. It doesn’t always work like that. Sometimes doctors are so excited to make money off an overly insured person that they don’t ask the very fundamental questions that can give a clue to the cause and nature of the illness.
