SIX GOLDEN RULES FOR CHIROPRACTORS

Dr Robert Lamberts REVISITED.

SIX GOLDEN RULES FOR CHIROPRACTORS is an attempt to see things from the Chiropractic patient's perspective.

Dr Robert Lamberts's blog revealed that there are a great many patients grossly dissatisfied with their medical doctors for one reason or another. Research has clearly shown that Chiropractic patients are a good deal happier. Totally happy? Certainly not. Can Chiropractors learn something from the Lamberts experience?

We warmly invite firstly Chiropractors and secondly any Chiropractic patient to submit their own version of "Dr Robert Lamberts revisited". Do it via CONTACT US.

Rule 1: "They don't want to be at your rooms, Doctor."

  • For the Medical doctor
  • Dr Lamberts, MD:

    It may seem odd to patients, but most doctors forget that going to the doctor is generally unnerving. Being in a doctor’s rooms is normal to doctors but not so with most patients. The spotlight is on them and their health. They stand on the scale, undress, tell intimate things about their lives, confess errors, are poked, prodded, shot with needles, lectured at, and then billed for the whole thing.

    There is always an underlying fear and self – consciousness that pervades when a person is sitting on the exam table.

    The best thing to do in response to that is to show compassion.



  • For the doctor of Chiropractic
  • Dr Lewis, DC:

    Could it be that Chiropractors may have forgotten that a consultation with a Chiropractor (certainly for the new patient) is unnerving?

    The patient has probably been sternly warned by their doctor that it could be dangerous. A chiropractic manipulation could break a bone, cause a hernia or worst of all a stroke. The fact that the medical doctor neatly omitted to say that it occurs only once in about two million manipulations, making it about the safest health proceedure of all, is neither here nor there.

    They will be asked to reveal some very personal things about their lives, confess to stupid things they may have done and generally open a can of worms that they 'hoped would just go away', but it didn't.

    They will have to undress and be stared at, like a poodle at a doggy show. Evaluated. Assessed. And it's all done with a critical eye. Perhaps they fear a lecherous eye ...
