Can anyone refer a doc for me? I am in Paragould, Ar.......and I work in the medical field myself. I have alot of things going on with my health and body and I think that I may have an auto immune disease going on. I have a doc and I love him, but I have a problem expressing my pain in fear of being looked at as a whiner, so I would never want to tell him or his nurse that I think that I am possibly very ill. I guess health care workers all have a problem when it comes to taking care of themselves, and I am no different. I would like to go to someone new, but would like to have references that they are good. I would kind of like to see a woman, but it certainly wouldn't have to be. I am middle aged myself, so don't know if I would be comfortable with someone alot younger.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sometimes healthcare workers worry about others and don't realize the neglect to themselves (which can compound a problem). If you are having considerable amounts of psychological stress, find a doctor that will hear those concerns as well as your physical signs and symptoms.

Do you have a suggestion as to someone that would be a good listener and doctor?

Not very familiar with Memphis physicians. I haven't spent much time seeing physicians as the patient. My experience as a person trying to get help has been a rather painful one, so I'm not a good reference in that department except based on my experience-be straightforward with your issues and concerns and expectations.
