    How to deal with patients who want to know even the minutest of details?

    I am working as a doctor in a government hospital. There are some patients who want to know even the minutest of details about their case. I know its our duty to inform everything to the patient but they sometimes ask too much that it irritates me. How to deal with such patients?

    Re: How to deal with patients who want to know even the minutest of details?

    Due to increase in the information related to health issue through media patients have become very much aware about there health now a days.

    That is why some patients want to know each and every thing about their health. Knowing the condition of government hospitals and the number of

    patients a doctor have to see it is obvious on your part that you cannot give much time to each and every patient.

    You can give the same answer to those patients also that you don't have much time now to explain to them about there disease as you have to

    treat other patients like them also and if you start giving those details to each and every patient he won't be able to see those patients and there

    might be possibility some who is in more need for your treatment won't get it. Thus you have to think of each and every patient that is waiting for

    his turn.
