Medically fit has been a pet project of mine for many months now. I’ve often heard from close friends and family in the UAE, horror stories of being misdiagnosed and worse still, being diagnosed and not having a clue as to what their diagnosis meant. Moreover, with the growing commercial nature of the healthcare profession today, lengthy and whopping bills are being drawn and presented to patients which often have patients bearing expenses that are completely unjustified, unnecessary and which have not really contributed to the diagnosis in the first place.Unethical to say the least!
As I see it there are two wrongs – One the physician who fails to communicate accurately and thoroughly and Two, the patient who fails to question the physician when in doubt.
Medically fit is my attempt to equip people with a basic knowledge of various ailments, disorders and diseases and to encourage them to gain a better understanding of their bodies on a whole. I don’t claim to be a specialist in any particular medical field but what I do have is a fair bit of experience in General and Internal medicine, General surgery and Accident & Emergency medicine as well. This is in addition to the knowledge and experience I’ve gained over my 7-year stint in the medical profession definitely allows for me to share with YOU, dear reader, facts.
It’s so that when people turn patients they are not in a state of panic and confusion post a doctors’ visit and are encouraged to voice their opinions and apprehensions. I’m going to try my level best to arm you with information over progressive weeks but should you require further clarification please do write in and ask. I promise you – my bark is far worse than my bite 😉 It’s important because it is YOUR body and you require awareness and education along with your health to be – Medically Fit Ã¢ËœÂº
