A doctor is also human too, we get sick and at times stubborn like the rest of our patients. Even if we know the consequences of an illness, we tend to ignore the idea of taking the medications. Majority of us doesn’t bother to do the laboratory tests we usually recommend to our patients because we are just too busy in taking care of other people. In reality though, we are actually scared to find out that we are sick. Oftentimes, our colleagues succumb to a disease he specializes. Ironic this may seem but that’s the reality we couldn’t prevent. And even a very simple procedure can get several unusual complications, reasons why doctors are afraid to become the patient. We are very good in taking care of other people’s health but we are poor in taking care of our own.
