A real professional would not have done this to anyone. I don't really want to start a relationship, on the contrary. You haven't so much as been on a date. But all the doc had to do was gently push on the gallbladder and I literally jumped off the table because it hurt so bad. I love him and admire him simply for the person he is. Please don't embarrass yourself by assuming that he's flirting.
Don't return to this physician. Anyway, she called me one day, about a year in, fuming. You are more vulnerable to them because you have to fully put yourself in their hands, for treatment. He is too much in a different world for me. Although he has not been direct, the way he looks at me suggests he is interested. Besides a disc bulging out like the hunchback of Notre Dame, I had arthritis and a narrowing of the spinal column, and I'm not even technically middle-aged yet. Yet I cannot get him out of my head, I too, am in a very happy, loving and steady two year relationship, and my partner knows I fancy this consultant, but thinks it's more comical than anything.
Sounds more like flirting and nothing more. He knows I love him,I made him a card, just for him. Of course I was drugged and 'out of it' and I think he had this hand on my arm. There are no questions to ask, as he may have to recuse himself from your care. Is this unusual behavior for a medical doctor? A local General Practitioner to me has just been sent to prison for molesting woman.
He's always been a hot guy and I've been seeing him for about a year now. A reader, anonymous, writes 16 February 2009 : Like everyone else, I too, fell in love with my doctor. But refused to give me his after I gave him mine so I emailed him his work email one day just a friendly hello have a nice day. Professional Ethics is necessary in thie world of tupsy turvy people. On your end, it's totally inappropriate as a patient to be considering showing romantic interest in your doctor. Flirting is abusive and it doesn't make any difference whether the patient flirts with you because aprt from anything the relationship is not equal and can leave a patient feeling disempowered and distressed especially when they discover that the doctor was playing with them. Hope you have a speedy recovery! It appears that your infatuation with him is causing you to have wishful thinking.
Thanks to all of you wonderful ladies for sharing. He told me at different visits, that I have a nice smile, that I always look nice, that he's proud of me, that he liked my shoes, and that he's always happy to see me because I am a nice person. Drs who do this to boost their ego are abusing their position of trust. If you do manage to get into a relationship, especially if you are married with kids, consider can you achieve true happiness if your betrayal causes the suffering of your husband or children. I miss him soooooo much and i kno he misses me too. He Compliments You This is an obvious one, especially if he compliments your appearance. His practice is about an hours' drive from my homeplace, so I only ever see him when I have an appointment, which is rare, my next appointment may be my last, sometimes I even feel like injuring myself, just to see him again, that's insanity to me, anyone else feel like their head is just going to explode out of pure helplessness? I don't feel any disconnect with him emotionally or anything, but I don't know how to stop fantasizing over this doctor.
If he thinks you are a hottie and is dying to go to bed, he'll call you I'm sure. Watch how he interacts with others, then compare it to the way he is with you. I think it's because our personalities clicked so well, and right away we started bantering back and forth and making each other laugh. Keep your head in reality and on professionalism though. Some people like docs with that type of method and some don't.
In that sense the relationship is very much one-sided since you do not take care of him again, like a child with her father. He has to be sure that he has properly heard and understood your symptoms. But it's pretty obvious what he wants, he made moves when you were on the exam table. Doctors have intimate access to patients body and mind which is in self very powerful and disempowering. So did my daughter, and my husband got a hand shake. He told me that he didn't think I needed to leave his office, just to be careful not to go beyond some very light flirting.
Beyond this, your doctor is an expert and you go to him for help and advice just as a child approaches a parent for help. I wish it could have happened another way because I don't believe in having affairs and people were badly hurt in the process. We decided neck surgery was the next step, as I'd done the physical therapy, an epidural they're not just for childbirth anymore and got nowhere. Makes a joke about the fact that I had previously had a child would make the procedure easier, while his hand was still resting on my stomach. There is a certain electricity when you talk to him and it leaves you buzzing all night. After lunch I stopped back in the office knowing she was there and asked for her number to call her.
I would not think they were stupid or desperate. The question about your home life is indeed a very normal question to ask. But is there any way I can find out if he is flirting? She added that she felt uncomfortable and the doctor was asking her if she was enjoying it. I had foot surgery in the last few years. It is far away and I have to fly to go there. I point this out so that you will understand that the transference is a universal part of human interaction, not just something that happens to therapy patients. Eventually, I asked him out to lunch to talk about some shared business interests just because I felt I had to get to know him better; to my surprise, he accepted.
