Your Body Language Tells A Lot About You | Dr Sahir Shaikh
LinkedIn Post Update By: Dr Sahir Shaikh MD MBA
I used to be a cynic when I first started working as a medical expert!
People claiming to have pain all over the body after a minor car accident 😀
✅ But the more I know the more I learn
Car accidents are just a tip of the iceberg of some of the problems they are facing
Sometimes they just need to talk to someone
Increasing cost of living also means some times they see claim as source of additional money
I get it
And that’s why it’s interesting to observe them covertly when they walk in the examaintion room.
Body language tells you a lot
Look at the person as a whole
But also stick to the facts and report the facts.
You may well have lots of non specific symptoms but
not everything can be due to a simple shunt to your car 🚗
My opinion is based upon a range of opinions and patients body demeanour tells me quite a bit
than what they are actually telling me 😀
After 25 years of this work I surely can see the telltale signs of exaggeration in few cases.
✅ And that’s what I mean when I talk about a robust medical expert
That’s also why I enjoy my work
What’s it you enjoy about your work ?
