“What we have now is doctors who are actually better technically at what they’re doing in their specialty than 30 or 40 years ago, but we lost the relationship, when the doctor would look people in the eye and say ‘I care about you. We can do this together.'” Mehmet Oz
The inner communication is the more difficult one since it where a connection occurs with the patient. In a sense, it is the need to connect with that person’s spirit and show them a way to get where they would like to go. In my experience, when I don’t see results from a particular treatment, one reason is the inner issues that “block” the patients from following through.
How to Get the Best Results from your Doctor Visits
1. Come Prepared
Coming prepared means not only having your list of medications but also coming mentally prepared with questions.
2. Have a Positive Attitude
Nobody ever rockets straight upwards without getting off track. The key is sticking to your goal and believing in yourself. In a previous blog I explored the “Be Set Free Fast” technique to cue your subconscious to improve self-confidence.
3. Be Open with your Doctor
I help my patients best when I know where they’re coming from.
4. Ask Questions
This can be done during step 1. Always remember there are never any silly questions, only the ones you don’t ask.
5. Understand what You Want out of your Health
What goals do you have? Do you want to have more energy? Tell your physician so he/she can lead you to your health goals.
The most important thing is to work with your physician. Think of him as your coach, like athletes have, not a doctor. Coaches work with their clients to help them achieve their best. That’s what I want to do for my patients.
