ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A DOCTOR WHO IS A GOOD FIT?
Family Doctor/GP - Healthcare with genuine caring and personality
When you see a doctor - do you sometimes feel like you're just a number? Sure - he or she might come across as competent and professional but has a personality of a stick of wood. Wouldn't it be great to actually have a genuine relationship with your healthcare team? You can pick up the phone and they actually know who you are.
Hi - My name is Dr. Young Lee and I actually want to have a relationship with you. I believe that this allows us to build an understanding and genuinely like each other - which leads to you being looked after better. If you feel this is the kind of team you'd like looking after you - come and talk to us. Interview us first to see if we are a good fit for each other. See below for details.
INTERVIEW ME FIRST!
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU'LL GET ALONG WITH YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU'VE NEVER MET THEM?
You don't. How could you possibly know? Did you know that in some countries it's normal to interview your doctor first before signing up? This is actually a brilliant idea. Doctors and patients have to be a good fit. Frankly if you don't like your doctor, and your doctor can't stand you - this is a crappy relationship. It will probably affect your health outcomes and both sides will have trust issues.
WHY DON'T MORE DOCTORS OFFER THIS OPTION?
I honestly don't know. This idea came to me because a few patients actually asked for one. They wanted to form a long lasting relationship for years, and were concerned about compatibility. Let me be honest - they were some that had an interview and decided not to join. But that is a good outcome - it was not a good fit.
HOW DO I ARRANGE AN INTERVIEW?
Call us or email us to arrange a 10 minute interview time. We can do it in person ideally - or we could arrange a phone call or a Skype call. It is a free, no obligation phone call. Please note that this interview is not a free consultation. If you decide that we are a good fit and I agree - do sign up. If not - that is a great result as well. You might even find that even if we are not a good fit, you might know some friends or family who might be. Please do them a favour and invite them to interview with us.
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?
I would like to grow my practice with the right kind of patients. I want patients who are good, genuine people, who are interested in forming a long term relationship to help themselves. My role is to serve as your health advocate - which means I will tell you what you need and that might sometimes not be what you want. For that - we must build trust with each other - and getting along is the first part to that.
We want to do 2 things for you - 1. Keep you well. 2. Fix you when you're unwell.
