So do you trust your kids/family in doctors hands?

 If I doubt anything a doctor says I will get a second opinion, so I guess thats a yes/no situation, but I don't really trust anybody with my kids or myself...so yeah....

Yes but I feel like they can make mistakes just like anyone else. They are not super human.

 I had a very bad experience with my boys doctor and I had to report her. The doctor I have now is great. So no I don't trust all doctors.

Honestly...it depends.

 

Such as-I trust Dr's to take care of a broken bone, severe illness, or another intense thing that they are actually NEEDED for.

I do not feel they are needed for every scrape, bruise, cut, cold, or flu. Nor do I trust one with the birth of my child (in a normal pregnancy, yes there are instances where a surgeon is needed for that birth, but I am talking about a normal pregnancy) when everything is otherwise fine.

This also, I don't blindly follow someone just because they have letters after their name, I am going to do my own research, get many opinions and exhaust every avenue

 While I understand they are doctors in the end its my choice as a parent to be the end factor in deciding if I feel what they say is beneficial or not. But for the majority of it all ..yes I do

If it's a doctor I know and have chosen, then yes for the most part.  Otherwise, no.

It's not No for the first word, it's yes lmao, can't edit I'm mobile.

Quoting Gastromama2007:

No.



When my unborn son was diagnosed with a birth defect I had never heard of, I had no choice put to put all faith into my high risk OB, the surgeon saving his life, and a NICU staff to keep him alive.



He's here; and he's four. And without full trust in doctors and lots of faith, he wouldn't be here.



I trust doctors with my entire being, they went to school to learn medicine, I'm just a common mom. I've got lots of trust in doctors.
