Your Questions About How To Find A New Doctor

Susan asks…

What are the reasons why a medical doctor can get suspended from hospital for?

Since doctors are not employees of the hospital, does it really matter? How bad is it for a doctor to get suspended?

One doctor at my hospital got suspended (don’t know why) and they have to give all her patients (for that hospital) to another doctor. She came back the next day.
Have you ever been suspended as a doctor?

New Niche Finder answers:

The most common reasons for suspension are not signing charts. The chart room usually has a stack of charts for each doctor to complete, and if they are not done in a certain time frame, the doctor can be suspended. Everything that is dictated and all verbal orders have to be co-signed.

With electronic records, this is becoming a thing of the past, because the orders/documents to be signed just pop up on a screen to be electronically signed.

Other reasons would be behavioral issues, failure to maintain a license, or questionable medical practices. Those would not be a 1 day suspension, though. It was charts.

Sharon asks…

What would happen if The Doctor met a previous incarnation of himself?

Doctor Who question.. What would happen, theoretically, if the Doctor went back in time to when he met Rose, (or even further to the original Doctor Who series..) and met himself? Purely on accident, of course. Or on purpose. Whichever.

Chris asks…

What is the process of getting a new doctor to prescribe me my add medication?

My current doctor was basically a volunteer doc because I didn’t have insurance but now I have it so I need to find a new doctor. Will I have to get re tested for ADD all over again? Or can I show him the previous old bottles? If not could he talk to my doctor?

New Niche Finder answers:

The process is simple. You give your old doctor written permission to send copies of your medical record to your new doctor. There is no need to go through the diagnostic process again. If your current treatment is working for you, then there is no need to change your therapy. That makes it pretty easy for the new doc.

You may want to arrange to have your records sent to your new doc once you know who that is, before you have an appointment, to avoid delays in refilling your prescription.

Sandra asks…

How do you see a different doctor to your regular family one?

I like my doctor and I don’t want to change permanently. Just I should go to the doctor to get something I find it a bit hard to talk to her about checked. Is there a way I can see another doctor just for this one time? Are there like drop-in clinics where you don’t even need to be registered?

I’m in the UK.

Thanks for any help!

Just ring up and ask for an appointment with the doctor of your choice

You are entitled to see any of the Doctors in your Surgery.

Carol asks…

Would you choose a doctor who graduated from Harvard with honors or one who studied just enough to pass?

People put more thought into choosing a doctor than a Presidential candidate.

Anyone who does not choose the Harvard educated doctor is simply not telling the truth.

What do you think?
I don’t define success as agreeing with another doctor who has a lot of unhappy patients.

New Niche Finder answers:

I would choose the doctor who graduated with honors from Harvard. And I know who that is…
