PDF Editor FAQ

What is the difference between seeing a psychiatrist versus a counselor?

The psychiatrist is a physician, and will most likely guide the patient in different directions than a counselor. Their professions are very different.As a psychiatrist, a physician, I will take a full medical history, surgical history, review medical illnesses, medications, family history, social history, symptoms of current illness, and so on, in order to formulate a comprehensive diagnosis, and then a treatment plan.The treatment plan may include any of a variety of medications, one of several forms of psychotherapy, more psychological testing, perhaps lab tests, recommendations for primary care physician check up if I’m concerned about low thyroid or any other general medical illness, and so on.Only after establishing a clear diagnosis can I recommend treatment.As a general rule, a counselor would not do such an extensive evaluation, as they don’t have any medical training, and would only be able to recommend counseling.Psychotherapy and counseling are two different treatment modalities.Your talking is having a conversation with whomever you are with. The content will be guided by the training of the person you are with.

Why does a medical history form ask something about night sweats (I think that was the question asked)?

Why does a medical history form ask about night sweats?Because ‘night sweats’ is a symptomatic condition that can indicate a number of relatively (in general) minor issues, menopause for example.It’s a clue for medical professionals that something is occurring.

I’m in my 4th year of general medicine, and I’m afraid to not be a good doctor later. Does any medical student feel the same?

Look, dude, everyone is.That super hotshot surgeon? Between doing lines of coke and screwing nurses, he wonders if he’s got what it takes. The cocksure neuro attending? She goes home and rehashes everything, eating a tub of ice cream, watching Friends, and hoping that one day she’ll be a “real” doctor.Here’s me: I wonder every day. Because, like you, I have an idea what a “good doctor” is. Which, generally, is what you’re not being taught in med school, and the stuff insurances don’t pay for. It’s not billable hours, it’s not “saved” patients, it’s something else, something we can’t grasp, can’t verbalize, can’t really measure.And that’s where it starts. Verbalize, and you can measure. What is it, that makes a good doctor in your world. What makes you stand out? Perform well?Once you have those things, find a way to measure them. Did you live up to your expectations?Don’t go crazy. No one, not the surgeon, not the neuro, not your senior resident, not your attending, not even those guys (sadly rarely gals) whose busts they proudly display everywhere, that “made medical history” ever felt like they were good enough. And none of them started fully formed.Find what you are in the job for. For me, I found my “calling” in Paracelsus’ “Sedare dolorem, Opus Divinum Est,” soothing the pain is the highest of callings. Yours might be different, and 4th year is about the time you might have a good idea about medicine and what you like about it.Then go for it.You know what makes a good doctor, one that has what it takes? I tell you: they’re asking themselves every day if they have what it takes.
