20. Your Doctor Disregards What You Find Online
Your physician would be much amiss to rely on Doctor Google for your diagnosis. After all, he or she did work hard to go through medical school and get licensed to practice medicine. That said, if you have found something on WebMD or another site that you think does bear some attention, your doctor should at least humor you and look at the information.
While you shouldn’t spend hours Googling your symptoms (you will usually come up with a worst-case scenario), if your doctor disregards everything you find online, you may need to find a new doctor. What you discover online may or may not be valuable, but at the very least, if your doctor is not listening to what you are saying, then that is a huge red flag.
