My approach to Men's Health (and or a patient communicating with their doctor or medical team) is for all men to remember, you are the C.E.O of your own health and Life.
We will lead men to the resources whereas they can communicate a little more effectively with their doctor and/or medical team.
Men, and/or their family members (or caregivers) will learn, if at any point you do not feel respected and or appreciated by your doctor and or medical team; you should seek care from another doctor (and or medical team).
Never compromise your health (and or your life) because you like someone personally. If they don't provide you with the most up to date information for your health journey, it may be in your best interest to find someone else that can address your actual health needs.
And, yes; it is okay to Fire your doctor and get another doctor (and or medical team) that respects and appreciates you for who you are.
