I like the article:“ What is 'good doctor'? ”.
The problem in practice is: Where is good doctor Where can this minority still be found in the largely lost art of healing (see book by Prof. Dr. Bernard Lown)? I can't find this on value scales on the Internet; the information is misleading.
Today woman with kidney stone colic told me that she can express herself succinctly and clearly that the admission doctor at the hospital did not want to listen to her from the outset, but first ordered CT and an MRI. Benchmark: Make money!
On the same day I heard from 40-year-old that his nose was blocked by cold and his hearing had deteriorated on one side. The family doctor ordered daily infusions even over the Christmas period without an ENT examination when diagnosed with acute hearing loss.
He did not want to fill out referral to the ENT.
Third case today: I am on the phone with fully oriented 90-year-old who was placed in care bed with raised slats after domestic accident with skin wound on her buttocks. She had to spend five weeks lying down and diapered in this trap, although she could also stand in my presence.
On the phone, friend told me, frustrated, about her hospital stay, where she, as private patient, used the principle “let's make money ”.
Of course, these examples are not compatible with professional enjoyment.
