If you have something that you are worried about and want to get checked out by a GP, or have an illness or injury which needs treating, then you need to go to the doctor as soon as you can before you seek advice from our injury experts in Rozel Bay.
Some people have a fear of the doctor which stems from bad treatment in the past, not feeling listened to, or not liking their current doctor. Whatever may be causing your fear, it is important to get over this fear as soon as you can, or you risk putting your health in danger. Here are some tips for getting over fear of the doctor.
- Work out what the problem is. Not the problem with your own health, but your problem with the doctor. If you don’t know what is causing your fear then it is more difficult to deal with. Try to think about when your fear of the doctor began and what you are actually avoiding.
- Change doctors. If your fear of the doctor is simply because you don’t like your own, then switch to another GP or practice. If it is as simple as going to see someone who you get along with better, or trust a little more, then you should do this as soon as you can.
- Ask what to expect. When you call your doctor to make an appointment, explain your fear and ask to speak to your doctor in advance. They can then reassure you about what is going to happen so that you know what to expect, and don’t make the situation larger in your head than it actually is.
- Tell the doctor your worries. If the doctor knows that you are afraid and why then they can be more sensitive towards your feelings and talk you through everything that is happening. They will also be able to give you reassurance that anything you are worried about is unlikely to be dangerous or severe.
