9 Important Things Every Doctor wants You to Know

According to results of research, doctors are likely to be given to burnout, depression and poor sleep. It is very important for everyone to know much about their doctors, because they are doing much in saving lives, though God does the greater work, but they really need to be given kudos for carrying on with a difficult career.

1. We understand how you feel, even though we might not show it emotionally.

“Dealing with the suffering of patients day in and day out can lead us to hold back emotionally and make us seem less empathetic than we really are.” ―Keith Humphreys, psychiatrist at Stanford Health Care

2. Every Doctor knows and takes his/her work very serious.

“Becoming a doctor is the greatest honor I can imagine. As a cancer survivor, dedicating my life to taking care of sick children and their families is an enormous privilege that I’ll never take for granted.” ―Shira Einstein, 2018 MD Candidate at Oregon Health & Science University

3. Doctor's work is more committed than just treating patients.

“Being a doctor goes far beyond the time we spend directly caring for patients in the clinic or hospital. As an ObGyn, I  also spend a lot of time advocating for women’s health by helping shape policy, teaching, and conducting research.

It is important for people to realize how many different factors influence their health both directly and indirectly, such as  understanding how policies like cutting National Institutes of Health funding may affect their health.” ―Maria Isabel Rodriguez, OB/GYN and assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine

4. Doctors are bothered when you believe and follow health tips that's not backed up with enough facts.

“For patients, parents, policymakers, etc. responding to prevalent vaccine hesitancy ... [I want them to know] vaccines are safe, vaccines are effective, vaccines save lives.” ―Dean Blumberg, pediatrician and associate professor at the University of California, Davis

5. Doctors spend quality time acquiring fresh knowledge.

“It’s challenging when you’re constantly being pulled in different directions and when you can’t simply leave your work at work, but I can’t think of a more rewarding career. I am constantly learning more about medicine, about people, and about myself.” ―Marilyn Tan, endocrinologist at Stanford Health Care

6. Doctors have their personal issues too.

“Try not to delay calling for prescription refills and minor issues to Friday afternoon, we also get worn out and want to go home. Also, try not to call first thing Monday morning with minor issues. I come in to a pile of calls from the weekend and if there is something that could wait a day, that helps me get it done.”―Paul Thompson, chief of cardiology at Hartford Hospital and professor of medicine at the University of Connecticut

8. They find their job as the best in the world.

“Even on my most challenging, busy and frustrating day, I can’t think of a more rewarding and satisfying profession to be in. I feel blessed to have the opportunities to take care of patients and families, to teach and learn from students and residents and to have a role in crafting and influencing policies that benefit the health of children.” ―Dean Blumberg

9. They never feel disgusted.

“Gynecologists don’t care if you haven’t shaved and don’t mind doing a pelvic exam when you are on your period.” ―Valerie French, OB/GYN in Kansas City
