my medical journey began last year.  the first thing i always observe (no matter what the environment) is how those with professional titles treat one another.  i have learned that a talented, professional, caring "TEAM" will  work "TOGETHER"

for you.  it may not happen the first time around ... however, it is your body, your diagnosis, your treatment, your choice of who you wish to handle your treatment.  Some times you will actually have to fight for it, but you deserve it.

if you were unfortunate enough to have only one member of your team who seems to feel that they are "better tan...smarter-than" ...and/or rude ... that is unacceptable for me ...

i agree that if each caretaker (no matter where they may be on the power tree) ... treats their patient as they would like to be treated ...

i feel very lucky ... i do check background/reviews on line ... a great professional team; in my case, main provider, palliative doctor, social worker, oncologist ...

plus a great personal care team ... your cheerleaders and again i feel very lucky that two of those have medical background ... so all members do not have to be able to get their heads around the illness at hand ...

take great care of you!  wish you well
