Science and the Art of Healing

THE ART OF HEALING

ON THE EIGHTH DAY GOD CREATED CHOCOLATE !


DOCTORS ARE SPECIALLY TRAINED AND LICENSED MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS, AND THEIR JOB IS TO MAKE A DIAGNOSIS AND THEN, TREAT YOU SO THAT YOU CAN GET BETTER FROM ILLNESS.  THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF DOCTORS .

WHEN YOU ARE ILL THE NORMAL PROCEDURE IS FOR YOU TO VISIT YOUR DOCTOR AND FOR EMERGENCIES GO DIRECTLY TO THE HOSPITAL. 

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF REASONS WHY A DOCTOR DECIDE TO REFER THEIR PATIENTS TO A SPECIALIST. THEY MAY WANT TO EXCLUDE THE POSSIBILITY OF AN UNWELCOME DIAGNOSIS AND MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS THEMSELVES, OR THEY MAY BE PUZZLED BY YOUR LACK OF PROGRESS. DOCTOR/GENERAL PRACTITIONERS MAY  ALSO REFER A PATIENT TO A SPECIALIST WHEN THE DIAGNOSIS IS OBVIOUS BUT THE NECESSARY TREATMENT IS BEYOND THEIR EXPERTISE. YOUR DOCTOR'S REFERRAL TO A SPECIALIST ISN'T STRICTLY NECESSARY FOR YOU TO BE ABLE TO CONSULT A SPECIALIST , BUT IN REFERRING YOU TO A MEDICAL SPECIALIST, YOUR DOCTOR WILL PROVIDE A LETTER OF INTRODUCTION THAT SETS OUT YOUR MEDICAL HISTORY, THE RESULT OF ANY TESTS AND THE REASONS FOR THE REFERRAL. THIS INFORMATION GIVES ALL KIND OF IMPORTANT CLUES ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH YOUR HEALTH. THE HISTORY ALSO TELLS YOUR DOCTOR WHAT HEALTH ISSUES YOU MAY BE AT RISK FOR IN THE FUTURE.
