Don’t treat the patient if you don’t want to

Screenshot 2022 09 19 at 08.21.40If a patient makes me feel uncomfortable and anxious, I do not treat them. However, this is much easier said than done.

Sometimes, I only find this out after I’ve seen the patient for a few appointments.

It is much better and less emotionally painful to not treat a patient than to try and fulfil unrealistic expectations. Also, some patients are difficult to form a happy working relationship with, regardless of their expectations.

For the treatment to work the patient must trust me.

I tell the patient or write to them stating “I don’t think I can meet your expectations.”
