The attending doctor used leading questions. She had her mind made up and took no new information on board. Her very attentive practice nurse had asked me a slew of questions before the doctor came in, yet the doctor refused to read any of it. This made me anxious and tense. I'm mentally ill and being put on the spot didn't make me feel like I was valued. My symptoms were trivialized and pawned off as 'psychological' instead of the doctor ensuring that they weren't physiological, which was the entire intent of my visit.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care.
