Doctor-patient relationship

I know you feel vulnerable here

You have an illness, and you fear

Being judged on any number of things

A doctor’s visit a sense of insecurity brings

You worry your lifestyle choices would be scrutinized

You inability to afford medications would be revealed to outside eyes

Your embarrassing indiscretions would come to light

All those demons you have to privately fight

Might be revealed, your health they adversely affect

You know you would be reminded of the ways you are imperfect..

*

As your doctor I cannot reassure you enough

I don’t mean to judge you, being a patient is rough

I just want you to be the healthiest you can be

All the constraints that you face, I can see

Many things are beyond my control, you should know

Drug prices skyrocketing, insurance coverage dropping low

I am willing to work with the limitations around you

The more I know, the more I can do

To help you reach the goal we share

I am on your side, please know that I care.
