Just wondering if anyone has had the same experience of trying to find a good doctor?
My doctor has retired after seeing him for 25 years, I'm struggling to find anyone who is, well a good doctor. Seems to me that they don't have time to listen to what you're telling them, they are on their feet, when I'm still sitting down. The personal service that I've had for 25 years just doesn't exist with the doctors I've been too. They won't do blood tests like my other doctor did every 3 months, if you're going back to see them in a week they don't know why you're there. Just want to give you a script and leave?
Then you have to go back because they've not investigated your symptoms proberly. I mean what sort of doctor if you're there with a cold does not look in your ears or down your throat?
It's going to be a nitemare which I've already discovered, curious if anyone else has the same problem.
Thanks for reading :)

Yep, I've seen my gp for 35 years he's now 74 and still practising but I assume he will retire shortly.
He used to have his own private practice and used to do home visits. He's delivered all my kids but currently works in a medical centre amongst other doctors none of whom I feel comfortable with.
I've been testing the waters for the last 12 months or so seeing different doctors but haven't been satisfied with any so far.
It's really hard and I understand your frustrations. Reply

Thank you so much, that's really kind of you & I certainly would take you up, unfortunately for me, I'm in Adelaide. It's just so difficult, it's all about in & out. Last Friday, can you believe my appointment was for 12.40pm, I sat there I was almost going to leave, as it was 1.55pm, stupidly I sat there for so long, anyway he calls me in at 1.59pm, I was so pissed off, I said as I passed him "oh I thought you'd gone home" not even a sorry it reply & I was out of there by 2.07pm. I was fuming. Plus I'm not all that happy with how he's treating me, I've seen other doctors there & it seems he the best of a bad lot, if you can believe that.
I really appreciate your reply and offer. Kind regards :) Reply
