When you think about it, the expectations set up by doctors and the culture of medical care in this country is unique to the medical profession. You would not show up to get your hair cut and accept your hairstylist talking on her cell phone while cutting your hair. You would not attend a meeting with an Atlanta malpractice attorney and accept having your lawyer distracted by his cell phone or tablet. As a customer, or a client, you deserve better treatment just as you do when you are the patient.
How to Get the Attention You Deserve as a Patient
As a patient you have the right to protect yourself from medical malpractice. Atlanta doctors may not be used to being asked to put down their devices and to pay attention, but you are the patient. You are the customer. You (perhaps via your insurance company) are paying for the service. You deserve to be heard.  If you feel uncomfortable questioning your doctor or asking your doctor to put down his cell phone or tablet to look at you, then bring someone else to your appointment who can speak up for you.
