How much do you trust the professional people you hire for a service?
I have almost zero trust in medical professionals. But I wasn't always like this. The trust got eroded along the way.
One endocrinologist asked me to use the machine she is familiar than the one I wanted to use. My choice was based on efficacy and comparison of many variables when using the options in the market.
One dentist duped me into getting a whole bunch of work done on my teeth so I could still have teeth in the near future.
One real estate agent told me I couldn't get a specific house I really wanted... claiming - 'you will not get approval'.
I know it wasn't true.
I am trying to sell a house now. The agent I hired is pressuring me to accept an offer hours after I got it because 'they will withdraw the offer'.
