Esmeralda ReyesHealth Communication U20M2: Individual AssignmentIllness NarrativeCommunication problems encountered between a patient and a health care provider is a bigissue many patients have faced. These issues have sometimes led to patients developing moreserious complications and death. One of the best communication problems I have encounteredas a patient is a health care provider inadequately classifying my illness. This has occurredmultiple times to me in two different settings in a clinic and in a hospital. Issues ofcommunication don’t just occur in just a small clinic but also in a big hospital. The issue that Ihave encountered is providers having an unconcerned response to my health issue. Those twotimes I spoke to a health provider as patient I wasn’t fully listened too, in one instance I wasonly there with the doctor for less then 5 minutes before he just diagnosed me with the flu.
