San Francisco Chronicle

When a patient sees a doctor she is in a position of vulnerability. She seeks help, understanding and a resolution to her pain. What she receives can be the antithesis. That happened to me not long ago.

I had pain of a very particular nature and in a quite specific place. So much so that I saw my doctor. If I actually get myself to go to his office it is only because I eventually realize that something is really wrong.
