How do I deal with an overly-concerned parent?


General practice and the art of medicine is about our personal relationships with our patients, whilst maintaining our professional borders. the use of the word mum is culturally appropriate and frames our relationship with our patients. When our patients come to see us, they are not coming to see their accountant. they are coming to see their family doctor whom we have hopefully known for years and will hopefully know for many more years. our relationship is key. - anonymous salaried!
