Remember the Acronym A.I.A:

A = Awareness: pay attention to how you are intuitively feeling. Notice if you are starting to get stressed. If you are, take some time to deep breathe (yawning is even better), stretch, tap or walk. This is all about getting oxygen to your brain and stopping the continual release of stress hormones.
I = Intentions: Remember what your intentions are for this mediation. If you want it to be collaborative, don’t take the bait if the other party throws out some competitive or judgmental statements.
A = Actions: What actions do you need to take to keep the negotiation on track?

The Problem With Online Medical Reviews

Interview with Dr. Mimi Secor:

What Dr. Mimi Secor Could Say in an Interview:

  • People see themselves as the only patient that day. They may comment as if they are writing a Yelp review and not take all factors into an equation.  This isn’t a dinner reservation.
  • We as clinicians are forced to see people quickly.  Our payment is tied to this. Some doctors seem rushed.  Unfortunately, they are. It is a problem with the system. Some do their best to work around that but will get paid less.
  • Patients come in with expectations with what is wrong/ailing them and expectations for treatment. They trust themselves and the internet more than what the doctor might say.
  • They think they can throw doctors under the bus with a review so they can get what they want.
