Iranian Doctors and the Importance of Communication

According to IranianDoctor.org, the purpose of medical practice and profession is to serve the community by continually improving health, health care, and quality of life for the individuals and the population through the effective use of resources. So doctors are an important part of any society.

An Iranian doctor is someone who is qualified to treat people who are ill or injured. If a doctor is a qualified surgeon, they are able to operate on those who are ill or injured. Doctors can choose to specialize in different fields. Iranian doctors can also choose to become general practitioners or general surgeons, which means they are equipped to deal with a wide range of medical and surgical issues respectively. Specialized Iranian doctors link primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of care and sometimes integrate with other specialists if multiple cares are required. This is particularly important for patients with chronic illnesses and those diagnosed with diseases that might be fatal.

An Iranian doctor or physician leads the medical team in caring for patients as the primary healthcare provider. A doctor diagnoses and treats diseases and conditions, as well as provides treatment in many forms including medication, procedures, surgery, or therapy. In addition to the diagnosis, the studies emphasize the importance of communicating with the patient.

Importance of Doctor-Patient Communication

There are many barriers to effective communication between physicians and patients. Doctors may be distracted by millions of other things as they try to listen to patients. Sometimes, patients don’t know their true underlying problem or what to reveal to the doctor. Meaning and intent can get lost. The relationship between patients and doctors is the most essential part of any medical practice. Besides treating the patient’s illness, a doctor should have an understanding of the Patient’s needs. This is a crucial part of any medical procedure. The ultimate objective of any doctor and patient communication and relationship is to improve the patient’s health and medical care. The patient should trust his doctor so the treatment or therapy can be effective and successful. The value of good communication skills and an effective relationship with the patient has been proved by several medical studies that show that these skills can result in an improved patient and physician satisfaction, better disclosure of vital information, greater adherence to treatment, reduced emotional distress, improved physiological factors and overall better clinical outcomes.

Qualities of a Good Iranian Doctor

Aside from the doctor and patient relationship that’s mentioned above, good doctors must have other characteristics such as:

  1. Confidence: Because a successful physician is highly knowledgeable, he or she must reinforce that with confidence. Confidence in Persian doctors, therapists and nursing staff leads to an improvement in subjectively perceived complaints, satisfaction, and quality of life in patients.
  2. Knowledge: Iranian doctors need to have encyclopedic medical knowledge that can be recalled at a moment’s notice. They also have to stay up to date with the latest medical news and trends. As advancements are made in the field, they will have to learn new information that enhances or counters what they have already committed to memory.
