Chronically Grateful Challenge Day 2: What Are You Most Grateful For On Your Healthcare Team?

  
I’ve seen a wide array of doctors and been to countless offices. While they all have tried to give me a diagnosis and treatment, I’ve only felt truly attended to and comfortable at a few of those offices. My neurologist and headache doctor is incredibly smart and transparent. Transparency isn’t always comforting in the healthcare world, but it’s so important and crucial to good and effective communication with your doctor. These doctors are exhausting all they can think of in order to help me. They answer my messages in a timely manner and they are able to sympathize and understand (or at least try their best to understand) my concerns, emotions, and symptoms. Patients like myself get frustrated pretty often because I have yet to find any answers, but these doctors don’t take it personally and they do what they can to help ease my frustration. I’d be nowhere without them!
