I trust them enough most of the time to respect their opinion, but never enough that I'll 100% believe whatever they say and leave it at that.  I think they're there for guidance a lot of the times, and I also don't think anyone should expect his/her doctor to be all-knowing and infallible.

 I completely trust my doctor. Why not? I mean a doctor spends 10+ years of education after high school and have the experience so yes I do trust doctors in general.

I have had a pretty decent size swollen gland (about the size of an quarter) on my neck for years that has always worried me. My doctor acts like it is no big deal. They did a few blood tests to see if maybe it could be a thyroid problem but it came back negative. My doctor has suggested nothing sense. Acts like its normal when I bring it up. That is just one of the reasons that I really do not know if I trust my doc or not.

I do research and take my doctor's advice into account. But I feel that if you do not trust what your doctor tells you, you need to find a new doctor.

The older I get the less I trust any Dr.  When I was younger I nodded my head and hung onto every word they had to say.  I must of appeared to be some young cadet to them.  Now nearing 40 I feel as though I know my body better than any Dr. would.  Now don't get me wrong if I needed specialized treatment I would take what Doc had to say into account - compare it to other opinions and make a decision what is right for me.

no because i remember telling my doctor that there was always mucus in my throat and i couldn't breathe sometimes and instead of investigating he just said " buy allegra"

also because my sister had breathing issues for years and the doctors told her she was fine until she switched to a different doctor who told her she has asthma.

I feel that traditional medical doctors are never 100% correct.  I don't trust them at all.  I am currently looking for a good natural physician.

To give you the most up to day information or do you take what he/she says and then investigate the issue?  I'm a research type of person.  I know for a fact, in my world anyway, that doc's aren't always 100% correct.

How about you ... ?
I moved to the DC area about 5 yrs. ago and have found only 2 docs I really trust & like...my plastic surgeon...did reconstructive surgery on my arm from a previous melanoma surgery...good work this doc but can't find a Gyn to compare to my doc back home...he was my doc for over 20 yrs. Two thumbs up  :thumbsup:for my docs back home  :thumbsup: :heart: :)

I trust our family doctor but if the case is sensitive always ask for 2nd opinion.

Yes, but I still ask questions and do my own research.

I only trust my Doctor as far as I can see him. As long as they act professional I do not have a problem trusting my Dr.
