Would you feel safer if you were being treated by a doctor who had the same condition you had? Some physicians can be reluctant to go public with their own health problems..
But others are more open about their struggles..
Would you be in safer hands if your doctor had the same illness as you? We hear from a dermatologist with a skin complaint, a psychiatrist with depression, an oncologist who survived cancer and a maternal fetal medicine specialist who couldn’t conceive.
I knew that trying to become a first-time mom at 40 would be tough. My fears were realized when my first pregnancy ended in miscarriage. Although that loss was devastating, I had no idea just how much more disappointment I was about to experience.
Anyone who has gone through infertility treatments and is fortunate to become pregnant knows that you become very attached to the staff and doctors who take care if you during such a strenuous and emotional process.
