Anyone else feel obligated to take family/friend referrals to healthcare providers? My brother is a dentist and, in light of some work I need done, said "hey! Go to so-and-so at such-and-such. He's a friend and really great." And I'm sure he IS really great, but I love my dentist and don't feel a need to switch. But my brother has already told his friend to expect me.

Yes, these situations are super stressful because I care about how my friend/family member will feel. I don't want to embarrass them or make them feel upset with me. But I've also learned over the years (by taking some not-so-great referrals) that there are better reasons to go to a doctor. If you feel great about the dentist you're already seeing, tell your brother thanks.... but no thanks.

I don't have that problem, thankfully. I think it is important to learn to say no. People won't be offended if you tell them the truth.

I have experienced it one too many times. I just hate that they don't ask me first before making a promise to whoever. I mean, I'm all about helping but at least ask for my approval first. I have a lot on my plate and I don't need another responsibility to fall on my lap.

You don't have to if you don't want to. It's not too late to get started on learning to say no. There's also so many ways of saying it without coming off as too brash.

I really dont have that problem and actually wish I could have some people refer me to drs. It would take that burden off me sometimes when I need the help or advice.
