communicating with docs
COMMUNICATING WITH DOCS (and others)
Here's something that has bothered me a lot and that's just how to handle the communication with the doc about my wife with my wife sitting right there too. About 4 years ago when all this started she was terribly offended when I candidly spoke to the then Doc about her. The last thing I want to do is offend her. We sure didn't make 40 years and still be each other's favorite person by being inconsiderate did we?
Typically she (the new Doc) or (anybody for that matter) will ask my wife a question and the answer may be anywhere from close to out of thin air that just sounds about correct. Unfortunately the questioner takes in these answers at face value.
Do I sit there and correct her answers in her presence?
Do I insist on doing all the answering?
Do I sit sort of behind and shake my head if the answer is rong? Then correct it?
Make quick written notes/corrections and hand em to the Doc?
My wife is losing it but she is not stupid.
