Kactus at Feministe has blogged about her trepidation about going to see her doctor.
I’ve spent the last few days in a state of increasing agitation over the prospect of seeing my new doctor. You know how it is when you are fat, female, and (past) 40–the doc is very often Not Your Friend.
Fortunately, her experience was a positive one.
As a med student, I’m really interested in what people like and don’t like in their doctors.
Lets say your doing something that’s unhealthy (say… smoking a pack a day)… would you want your doctor to try and give you options to quit? Would you prefer he kept his distance?
It sounds like a job for the Fatosphere!
