The purpose of this research study is to explore some of the complexities present in treating and being a physician-patient. The study is informed by scholarly work on physician-patient dynamics, by a memoir written by a physician-patient, and by interviews I conducted with doctors at a Midwestern university hospital. By better understanding the challenges surrounding medical care for a physician-patient, the study hopes to provide a foundation for learning how to provide the best care for the physician-patient, and more generally to illuminate the dynamics of knowledge, power, and emotions that shape encounters between physicians and patients.
