We had a patient that this was happening to this past week. She had not seen a doctor all weekend, and was adamant that she needed to see one. Monday passed, and a resident was by when the patient was sleeping so she didn't go in. Monday night when I had her, her condition worsened and she is now in ICU. The patient knew something was going on but the doctors would not listen to her. Yes, she often got very anxious very easily, and I am sure that when the doctors would see her it would not be a quick visit. However that is no excuse for avoiding patients.
