to "Anxious" and Cyberdoc

Thank you Cyberdoc for your non-judgemental assistance. Anxious, let me set your mind at rest. I have no intention of reporting this doctor for malpractice. He is a good friend for whom I feel affection and loyalty. He is also old and tired, often forgetful and distracted, forgetting things I tell him or things that he intends to do or say, hence my need for a second opinion, as it were, which incidentally has proved to be necessary.

Dear Este
I am glad you went for a second opinion - doctors are also just people and can make mistakes although we try not to! Remember that patients also have "human Rights" - to know what is wrong with them, to expect the doctor to be honest, to request a second opinion, to be treated with respect and confidentiality.

OK - it sounds as the two of you - you and your doc do get on fine.

Hope you do get to have the tests you need and that the results are what you are looking for.
