If physicians are not honest who do you or should you trust?  This is your life, and you only have one.  So who’s listening to the patients and looking for their best interest…health and their life!  You need to protect yourself.  Read the survey results below, but keep in mind there are still honest physicians and healthcare professionals around.

    Somewhat frightening. No wonder we don’t know who we should trust. A bit of a mine field really & not fair for the honest healthcare professionals who would need to prove their trustworthiness to patients.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you, Edie! The survey results make the case for being active in our own care.

      Prevention is the key to health! It’s what we don’t know that hurts in healthcare … so it’s important we know if professionals are honest and trustworthy!

        Yes, and we shouldn’t we shy about changing doctors if need be.

    I have been a friend of Edie’s for well over 40 years, ugh. Time passes so fast! We have talked for years about avenues that could be used to get her story out. I’d just like to share that every word written in her blog takes a considerable amount of energy for her. She’s up to about 7 hrs. of energy a day which is unbelievable. I can remember a time when we spent our visits flat on our backs because sitting used take too much of her 3-4 hrs of energy a day. When I read her blogs they seem to have been written so effortlessly, when in fact most take up to a week to write. Edie is one amazing woman and she writes because she cares and wants to help others with TBI, their families and friends. I think it is pretty obvious that she is one of the most loving and caring people one could meet. God bless you!

      Kathy, What kind words you always share my dear friend! Thank you for being there for me through life in general and encouraging to get my story out. I would not do it if I couldn’t help others along the way. As those who know me the story is incomprehensible. A nightmare to say the least, but I’m much better and I’m grateful to many and my new healthcare team. Friends believe in you and pray with you. Edie
