Human nature leads to friendly behaviour, emotional attachment and intimate relationships.Such relationships or attachments between a doctor and patients often lead to complications, especially if the genders are opposite.
For most physicians, the establishment of good rapport with a patient is important.
Doctors' lives are highly stressful, so you may have to help them unwind at the end of the day. A relationship with a doctor is likely to look very different from other types of romantic relationships.
The doctor–patient relationship is central to the practice of healthcare and is essential for the delivery of high-quality health care in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
Maintaining a long term family physician/patient relationship reduces the risks associated with patient hand-overs, an event which can be associated with a greater probability for loss of information or disruption to a plan of care.
If a physicians’ approach is not meeting their needs, patients are encouraged to schedule an appointment with their physician to discuss their concerns.
