Nearly everybody hates going to the hospital. Most people skip their regular health check-ups and only go to the doctor when they feel sick or have a specific problem. One of the main reasons for this behavior is the doctors’ attitudes. Some healthcare professionals can be condescending, egotistical, or arrogant during a visit, making their patients feel uncomfortable and belittled. On top of that, doctors often underestimate their patients’ symptoms, which means they take longer to come up with the correct diagnosis and treatment. Since there are many stories about awful doctors around the internet, we’ve decided to compile them and show you how terrible some healthcare professionals can be.
