Never ever say this as a doctor trainee!

As a doctor trainee, there are certain sentences you should avoid saying to maintain professionalism and ensure patient trust. Here's a list of sentences to never say:

  1. "I have no idea what's wrong with you."

  2. "This procedure is no big deal; it's super easy."

  3. "You probably don't need that medication; it's just a placebo."

  4. "I'm so tired. Can we reschedule this appointment?"

  5. "I'm not sure if I can handle this. Can someone else take over?"

  6. "I saw a similar case on TV once. Let's try that treatment."

  7. "You'll be fine. Just trust me, I'm a doctor."

  8. "Your previous doctor must have been incompetent."

  9. "I don't believe in alternative medicine. It's all nonsense."

  10. "You're just being dramatic. It's not that painful."

Remember, maintaining a compassionate and professional approach is essential when communicating with patients.
