Some people today prefer to get advice for medical problems and do not want to visit a doctor. Why is this? Is this a positive or negative development?
These days visiting doctors has been a highly debatable topic among many as it is a sensitive one related to people’s health. I believe that it is a negative development as sometimes it can lead to serious damages to the health of the individuals.
One of the most conspicuous reasons is the highly charged fees to visit a doctor, and the medication prescribed to the patient leaves them no option to stay home and avoid them. People not only rely on the elders for some suggestions, but they also try and look out for solutions to treat it easily at home. Health is precious, and everything cannot be treated at home either by taking advice from surroundings or searching for remedies on the internet. Some routine problems like cough, fever, a mild headache and so forth could be possibly taken care of by knowing the generic medicines from an expert. It would be considered fine to use them for temporary relief. Hence, it can be hazardous to take any medication without consulting the doctor.
Another pivotal reason is that the health care services have not been recognized as trustworthy as they were in the previous years. There is a gigantic difference between now and then. In the past, doctors were the angels to cure people and give them new lives but now, what treatment do they give to the patient, how do they treat them, what kind of surgeries do they do? People are literate but not educated about the treatments given to the patient. With state-of-the-art technology, diseases have also grown into so many variants, types and adversities. Therefore, it has become hard to have faith in health service providers as what they do and what they charge and what the truth is, nothing is fairly known to the relatives waiting out for the diseased being treated inside.
It is precisely a negative development that can be dealt with fatal results by not considering a doctor for the health issues. Whatever is charged and treated has to be trusted by the patients, and the doctors have also need to be more responsible and less corrupt in their jobs. As a positive result, both humanities, as well as life, can be saved.
