    I wasn't sure where to put this, and sadly this doctor isn't involved in ME/SEID, but I wanted to post it as it shows that some doctors really do understand that they need to keep an open mind and keep up to date.

    This illustrates to me how important it is for doctors to carve out a block of time to study and read. Here, some form of continuing education is required to keep a professional license, including physicians. It has always bothered me when a doctor says he does not have time to read something I just gave him. It is a red flag to me now, because in the end it is lack of professionalism on all-too-important topics.

    It blows my mind that once out of medical school, they think they have all that is needed, and how dare anyone question their knowledge or authority.

    My current doctor reads and studies, and it is always a treat to sit down with him and hear what he has to say from his research. He may not always be up to date on my topics, but can tie things together quickly from other things related. He is very open to new information.
