Many patients are disgusted with their doctors attitudes

Patients know to be careful about complaining too much about their doctors, particularly when dealing with psychiatrists and their associates. Psychiatrists after all will always take the defense that patients who complain about their rude and incompetent behavior are mentally ill and should be put on toxic psychiatric drugs and put away in mental hospitals, which are actually no different than political concentration camps. However, patients often also complain about other types of doctors, as reported by MedPage Today on Dec. 26, 2013.

Researchers in Turkey studied complaints at one university hospital over 4 years. According to their data, the hospital admitted about 2 million patients, and had about 500 complaints. This equates to .22 complaints per 1,000 visits. The researchers said, "One hundred fifty-three, or 33.8 percent, of complaints were made about physicians, and most of these, or abour 20.4 percent, were related to poor attitude of the staff. The primary complaints made by patients and their relatives were doctors are often rude and lack sympathy for patients who are ill. It was also said doctors are often flippant and arrogant.

Legal disputes between patients and doctors can be anticipated when there are problems with "wrong diagnoses, ineffective treatments, medication problems, and surgical complications," writes Harvard School of Public Health. It has been found that most patient complaints deal with quality of treatment, diagnosis, medication, and other aspects of clinical care. A few doctors generally get the most complaints, and they have been called “frequent flyers.”

Patients should be careful about all of this, keeping in mind that non-psychiatric physicians who are miserable will often run to the psychiatrists and their personal judges to help them have their critics labelled as being mentally ill, drugged and disposed of in the back wards of the mental hospitals, whenever possible.
