I need to apologize to my doctor

I kind of confronted my doctor yesterday and questioned my diagnosis that she gave me.
I basically lost trust I had in her and doubted her judgement.
This can’t be a good thing between patient and doctor.

I should not have questioned her better judgement.

I have the right to my opinion but I should never play doctor.

I crossed the line.

The bottom line is I feel the need to apologize.

I have her cell phone number that she gave me.

Should I text her an apology or talk with her over the phone?

Ugh… I really need to make this better.

If it would make you feel better to apologize,

Maybe you should text her or maybe you should put a message for her to call into the office.

I would do the office thing,

Seems more professional.

It’s more courteous to do it over a call I’d say?

A text works if you write it really formally and she’s/he’s able to imagine the tone you’re speaking in,

Go with what’s comfortable (you could also not need to because the matter of the situation is that as a dr, they face a a lot of disagreement anyway - she/he might not have even been caught off guard by it at all


She doesn’t have a secretary or office @goldenrex
Do you think I can text her?

Would this be appropriate?

If she doesn’t have an office,

I guess texting is the best way to get in touch.

In that case,

I’d text her.

Why do you need to apologise for questioning your diagnosis with her?

She probably respects you more for it !

Theres nothing wrong with a healthy debate !

Unless you were rude to her, i dont see why you should apologise

Without getting into details, I said something that was a bit out of bounds.

I sent her a text and feel a lot better about it.
I’m not expecting her to answer back.
