Visits to the doctor

Visits to the doctor have an ambivalent effect on most people. On the one hand, these are usually only necessary if there is a disease, which is why they generally take place under negative conditions. On the other hand, those affected also hope for help from the visit to the doctor and it is not uncommon for a certain relief to appear after the first consultation with the doctor. Basically, the relationship between patient and doctor is particularly important when visiting a doctor, because in a trusting atmosphere, significantly better treatment results can be achieved than with the suspicion that the implementation of the therapy may even be at risk.
