Don't Be Afraid to Reach Out to Your Doctor

Episode #157 / Feb 12, 2010
It's understandably intimidating to reach out to your doctor every time you think something is wrong. You don't want to be the patient who cried wolf. But even as uncomfortable as it may be, you really shouldn't be afraid to reach out to your doctor whenever you're concerned. That's what they're there for. And Dr. Schultz gives you his take on this subject.

I find these episodes where Dr. Schultz allows access to himself as an empathic human being to be very powerful. The whole atmosphere is different: he's more available and is clearly trying to create a different experience for us. I really appreciate this effort. For me it addresses the unspoken feelings a patient can have, and it honors them.
