Bedside Manner

Most women will agree that the relationship with her doctor is not unlike the one she has with her man.  She has to be able to trust the person and feel comfortable with them.  When you consider bedside manner, very few women will put up with a rude, inconsiderate physician that makes her feel horrible.

That is why I find it so strange that so many women put up with the same behavior from the men that they date.  A man’s bedroom behavior says a lot about his personality and character. The same as for women, men probably pay attention to how she handles herself.

I found a list of tips that are recommended for doctors, imagine that these are bedroom tips:

  • Be a good listener, patients may need to be encouraged to express their concerns and anxieties.
  • Be non-judgemental, avoid stereotyping patients on appearance or cultural or social background.
  • Avoid making any unnecessary personal remarks or jokes, especially when the consultation involves matters of an intimate nature.
  • Acknowledge the patient’s emotions and that they may be feeling frightened or anxious and need reassurance.
  • Approach all patients in a caring and considerate manner.
  • Remember, patients have busy lives, be mindful of waiting time

What do you think is good bedside manner is? What would you do if someone’s bedside manner was awful? If you think the person is worth it, do you bring it up?

@Dream I am glad the little one had a good time. Why you you Ms. Chi-town could not handle this little pixie weather we had…LOL?

@Melo…As for the funeral tonight it is going to be a jazz style funeral because we are going to bury the saints. I look forward to the falcons messing up that record. I am going to watch the game tonight, but I really want to stay home and chill so that when the game goes off I can turn off the lights

I think for me, they are about equal.

Ange – While long distance deals are not for me, my advice to you would be to feel the situation out. See where this dude really is with it and know whether or not you can get what you want out of the situation.

Is this something he suggested? If it is a mutally agreed upon situation, with understandings and perameters (sp?) and deal breakers outlined and all that, don’t nothing beat a failure like a try. (This goes for friendship as well.)

Angie,in my opinion and at this stage in ur lyfe,the most important thing is to be under a man’s belly.,with a strong arm bringing u closer.

Long distance wont do it for u.
Thats jus a whole lot of cobweb gathering under ur nana and lots of angst for nothing.

“Cupid Shuffle comes on my playlist and who do i think of? The Token.”

Hi, Cee… I’m just living the dream — what’s up with you? Now, why would Cupid Shuffle make you think of me? You trying to say something about my dancing abilities? ;-)

“better make money with this “talent”,at least more than what i make, what u think??”

Melo — I’m all for getting paid for one’s talents. Seriously, one of these days I’m going to write a book w/ a narrator using your blog language as a model — I love it… it’s like A Clockwork Orange, with less violence & more horn-dog…. :lol:

Yeah, if you saw the wedding pics, you’d have visual evidence, Cee. There’s about 5 shots of everyone on the dance floor, in perfect unison — except me right in front, completely off-step with a look on my face like WTF?!?! :lol: The d@mn photographer even snapped a pic of me knocking over one of the DJ’s light stands… :lol: Uh… yeah… my bad….

Otherwise, the Mrs. & I are both doing quite well, thanks. Closing in on finally having a new house… Everything’s on schedule at the moment to close on my b-day. :-D Fingers crossed…

Thanks, Cee… Though, I don’t want to get too excited until it closes — don’t want to jinx it (’cos it would be a sweeeeeeet deal if it goes through). Though, really, the only thing outstanding now is the appraisal, and that shouldn’t be an issue at all (it’s a foreclosure that we’re getting for way less than it’s worth). B-day (& tentative closing date) is Nov. 20.

why wld any rational and avid Falcon fan go to New erlens unless they are addicted to pain,angst and suffering???

Swiss – I’m sure you know to treasure even those not so becoming wedding photos they tell a part of it that you so conveniently forget to mention when folks look at them.

I have some pictures where i’m dancing at a white party and one of your cousins came rollin’ up behind me and when the photographer took that shot it is in a not so good angle. So yea…i know those type you kinda look sideways when you see ‘em again.
