Empowering Patient Advocacy: A Commitment to Genuine Care at Health+Plus
In the world of healthcare, it is disheartening to learn that many women have felt their symptoms were disregarded or dismissed as “imaginary” by their physicians. In fact, a 2022 survey indicated that 71% of women said that a physician had told them that their symptoms were imagined.
This is also known as gaslighting. Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation in which one person attempts to sow self-doubt and confusion in another person’s mind. In medicine this includes not taking the patient’s concerns seriously, or even determining that the patient is ‘only imagining’ their symptoms.
To be blunt: it has no place in medicine.
At Health+Plus, located in Oak Grove, Missouri, we are committed to providing an environment where your concerns are heard and respected. As holistic medicine providers, we believe in empowering our patients and fostering a genuine partnership in your healthcare journey.
