I have a question about DO rec. letter deal. I have asked several DOs for shadowing opportunity through either the clinic I volunteer or just physician directory online. Then I did get to shadow several physicians whom I could even ask for a rec letter. But the thing is, I don't think that it's good enough for what I am looking for. I am looking for a doctor who is willing to dedicate his time to know my strength, my personality, my passion and my need. I want a doctor who is willing to teach me, to have a personal relationship with me so I can have, not just a strong rec. letter, but sort of a friend. I know lots friends of mine got connections with Doctors, either their parents are doctors or their parents are professors. I myself though, don't have any connection like they do. Doctors I found they only allow me to see some stupid crap. My friend got to see colonscopy, I got to see ****. And all those physicians I worked with, they have their private pts, therefore they care about business, if you know what I mean. They can't and they won't risk their business for a premed student whom they don't even know, to offend their pts by bring me into the session bluntly. Yeah, it'r true that their considerations are reasonable. I am not medically trained orentrusted personally with them. This previous doctor she just asked me few questions and led me see several of her pts w/ very limited involvement, then she said it's enough for her to write my rec. That's so bs. No matter what she writes, will not do any good for me. I am kinda an untraditional accplicant. I really need a strong rec from a doc who understands me. I don't just want a rec letter just like a routine procedure cuz it's part of the process. I want it to mean something. My question is that how will I be able to find a doctor like that?
