Rude Pediatrician @SwissMediKids...how would you react as parents?

As I am writing, I am very upset and do not know how to react to a rude pediatrician who shouts at a 2.yo.

Finding a good English speaking pediatrician is a challenge in Zurich as it seems. We have been visiting Kinderarzthaus at Stadelhoefen before this and the staff was extremely polite and the doctors too, however we felt that our LO was not getting the right advice. After seeing a reference of Kinder Permanence Zurich, also known as SwissMediKids, in this forum, I and my wife took our 2.yo to their Zurich center last month. The first visit went well and we were happy that our son got the right attention to his constipation problem.

However, it was a totally different experience for my wife today. I could not join my wife from work as she took our son to get him checked up for what we were rightly suspecting as Chicken Pox Rashes.

Our son is very playful and talkative and as my wife tells me, she had him undressed for his control and had him prepared for the doctor to check his rashes. After a minute or two into his checkup, when my son started getting a bit cranky(being a kid and already struggling with his rashes), Dr.Rainer Kubiak started raising his voice at my little one "Why are you shouting? Why are you screaming? I am not touching you!!"

Another 10 minutes after the checkup when the doc was discussing about the precautions and treatment, my son went out of the room as he had access to the door while he was playing with the toys in the room.

At this point, when the nurses/receptionists saw my wife chasing my son, one of them screamed at my wife saying that the baby should be in the room and not be running outside during checkup. WOW! how professional?!?

When my wife brought him back to the room, the little one was possibly already cranky because of his C.Pox rashes and not cooperative. At this point, the doctor lost his temper, and BANGED his table thrice and SCREAMED on top of his voice at my L.O. "Why are you crying? Why are you shouting? I have to talk to your mom. Be quiet now!"

We have in the last two years never shouted at our son and have always talked him out of any situation very calmly, and to his total surprise when the Dr. SHOUTED and Reacted Banging his table, my son got scared and started crying even more and was scared like hell.

My wife being alone at the clinic today and already upset for the LO, did not know how to react to Dr.Kubiak's unprofessional and harmful attitude there and then.

When my wife told me about this incident later today evening, I have been very pissed off, very upset, very furious and am considering the following:
A. show up at Kinder Permanence tomorrow and talk to the Dr. in his tone and give him a taste of his own medicine and to the staff

B. discuss this with a Lawyer

C. Or am I just overreacting and should ignore this?(hard for me to let it go as he may do the same to another kid)
I don't know if I am overreacting, but my concern is if Dr.Rainer Kubiak is a Pediatrician and does not know how to handle kids, then he is in a wrong profession.

How would you react? seeking advice.

....An Upset Dad!

Re: Rude Pediatrician @SwissMediKids...how would you react as parents?

Let me get this right....you had a kid with suspected then confirmed chicken pox, and you let him go and run around the waiting room of the surgery and wonder why the staff got cross ? And, you were not actually there, you are going on your wife's version of events including her sense of embarrassment at the poor behaviour of your child, the stress of him being sick...

Plus, the staff may appear abrupt anyway... They may be fluent in english, but their goal is to get the info clearly across and move you on your way ASAP...and they don't always have the most sophisticated emotional language to do that.

To be honest, my kids paediatricion can be quite abrupt at times....but I still consider her to be one of the best... Great doctors don't always cone with the best bedside manners...

Kinderpermanence is for emergency I think. You need a regular paediatrician if you do not have one. I promise you would get the same 'hit and miss' treatment at the kids hospital...

Parents I work with seem to like the team clinic at sihlcity...

And if it's going to be a struggle to manage your child 's behaviour at the appointment, take two parents next time.. It means one can watch the child and the other get the info from the doctor, and you can compare notes later...

And yes, i think you are overreacting. If you have a poorly behaved child and cannot clearly communicate what you expect of their behaviour so that it improves....you are going to have many more times where people tell you how to should raise your child...sometimes they will be wrong, and sometimes they will be right.

What does your wife think about this ? It may not be 'solvable'...she might just need some understanding that dealing with a sick irritated toddler is horrid...

A Lawyer, or an argument is not the treatment required. It _might_ make you feel better, but most likely not.


It is always an emotional strain when your child is ill. There are worse things than Chicken Pox.


What you need is Calomine lotion, Baking Soda Baths, and a stack of childrens books to read to the little one.

And a nice basket of fresh fruit and chocolate for your wife...and the promise of a night off together without the kid somewhere nice when it is over...

Oh, and fingers crossed the parents don't catch it....I caught it from my daughter in 2008 and was delirious with over 40 degree fevers and pox everywhere (inside and out)...lucky i happened to be travelling at the time with grandma, who nursed both me and the 12 month old...

Was just about to write: get rid of names.

What you describe above, is your version of events - and you weren't even there. The practice might have another version. In naming you expose yourself to a charge of libel.

If you don't like the service, go elsewhere.

As for option A - you really think that'll work?

Option B - a lawyer, really. Why? For emotional trauma to your child and wife as well as a bit of PTSD? HTFU.

If you feel that strongly, write a letter of complaint to the practice, but in doing so you'll probably have burnt your bridges, so time to find another pediatrician.

(PS: You may have worked out I'm in favour of option C)

Sigh. So now your kid is shocked that it's behaviour affects others. And that's the worlds fault?

By no means I would allow a Pediatricians to shout at my kids, They work with kids they have to be prepared for it. It is like a Mechanic getting mad because he got his hand dirty?

For people who shout at their kids this might be acceptable but it is not for many people. I would write a google review of the paediatrician with what happened and let parents decide.

People who are ok with shouting can still go there. But it is really important you write it on places that other parents can check it easily. It may save some of us our time. Yelp, Google Reviews, I have seen also a website with reviews of doctors here.

Re: Rude Pediatrician @SwissMediKids...how would you react as parents?

Thanks for your piece of advice and perspective guys. I guess I was overreacting out of stress and had to sleep over it.

We normally keep that practice. 9/10 times I take my son for his check-ups or accompany my wife, pity that was not the case yesterday.

Thanks for getting my point. I may agree with most of the other members, but that still does not justify a Dr's attitude towards his little patients.

I will give it a miss this time, but if it happens twice and in my presence, he will at least get my feedback upfront(politely though). Yes, I want to visit him once again during next control, to check on him.

so you find shouting at your kids convenient and normal?

wondering how you handle your kids or what's wrong with a normal conversation if it works?

Yes, I do. Your kid is not your mate. I'm not talking about screaming at them, but in the situation you described they'd know who was boss. And a firm, stern reprimand is what was required.

No. That's not the problem.

If they have managed to raise their child without shouting then brilliant for them. It is more than I've achieved.

Were you in the surgery too? Can you tell us what happened?

I've been to the pediatrician with my little ones along the years and they aren't always the best behaved, but shouting rarely helps anything. Irrespective of whether the child is at fault or not.

You would not expect Drs to shout at children, especially a pediatrician. They know the game they are in. Is the behavior acceptable? Not really, but you don't know what is happening on the day or why. Maybe the Dr is stressed, maybe they are just not nice people.

So what can you do about it? Complain if you must and move on. The challenge is always that there is no one rule for raising children - there isa large grey space between what is right and wrong and for some cultures, societies and individuals shouting is OK, for others not.

Re: Rude Pediatrician @SwissMediKids...how would you react as parents?

I can empathize your feeling, even I had a bad experience in Swiss medi kids. I had a problem only with the doctor who mentioned "Your child will not die of cough". Initially I was very upset but later pacified my self that talking in English for native is difficult. However, it was definitely rude. So I always prefer to go to the Peadiatrician or Permanence (Adults) rather than Swiss medi.

I cannot comment on the childs behaviour, its upto you how you want to control your child. However, dont expect others to treat your child in the same way. Giving a feedback to Swiss medi kids would be a better option. Going to a lawyer seems to be an extreme reaction which is not necessary. Take care

My original point was not made in relation to what happened, but rather a general observation that many parents seem incapable of disciplining their kids properly. I was in a talk recently given by child psychologist Michael Winterhoff, and bought his book "SOS Kinderseele" after it. Whilst I don't agree with everything he says, there are some very good points.

Basically he says there's been a massive increase in socially and emotionally incompetent children due to the fact that modern parents try far too often to reason with their children as adults rather than discipline them and show authority. Something, that when you listen to him, makes a lot of sense.

Anyhow, going back to the situation described. No, I wasn't there. however if both the nurse/receptionist and the doctor said something, then I doubt it was a black and white as described. As they love to say so much over here "Aussage gegen Aussage", two verses one, most likely there's more to this than what's written here.

I made my share of mistakes when the children were young, but I generally used reason, and mostly only raised my voice to overcome background (or foreground) noise. Both of my children were, however, aware that there was a point where "because I am the daddy" or "because that is how it is" was the final word. They were ok with that, then as now (Which hopefully means I didn't invoke the final word too often).


You can't rationalise the fact that _this_ restaurant doesn't serve cheesburgers to a child. You can tell them to choose something else, or you can go to a different restaurant: but to expect the entire table to sit politely while you try to rationalise the unjustness of the world for 45 minutes isn't socially competent.

Re: Rude Pediatrician @SwissMediKids...how would you react as parents?

One of my favourite phrases when children are, for example, complaining bitterly that 'Jonny hit me me and I wasn't doing anything', is 'And what were you doing, before you weren't doing anything?'
Quote:
View Post
After a minute or two into his checkup, when my son started getting a bit cranky(being a kid and already struggling with his rashes), Dr.Rainer Kubiak started raising his voice at my little one "Why are you shouting? Why are you screaming? I am not touching you!!"
'getting a bit cranky' is your interpretation of your child's behaviour. 'why are you shouting? Why are you screaming?' is the doctor's interpretation and reaction to the same situation. Was the child a bit cranky or screaming?

I think many of us who have a lot of contact with other adults and their children, may, on occasion, seem very irritated with the child when in fact it is the parents who are really annoying us. (British understatement)
It isn't right. It isn't fair. It may be contraproductive. But it happens.

Talking reason to a child is fine if it works. Obviously here, if the child was becoming very restless, talking wasn't doing the trick. If the doctor is 'old school', like me, he was possibly totally frustrated that the mother didn't simply tell the child firmly to stop making such a fuss. It probably wouldn't have made any difference if she had done so, but the doctor might have felt that she was doing her best to stop the situation escalating.

This isn't much help I know but it should be food for thought. Some children are sure easier to guide than others. But sometimes, even with the more cooperative ones, the 'guiding' bit comes to an end. As JagWaugh says, sometimes it's a case of 'because that is how it is'. If not before, definitely when it comes to reacting in traffic.

Coming to our mother IMMEDIATELY when called we learned very early. Down to the air-raid shelter when the alarm sounded!

Hope you manage to put this event behind you and that you can avoid similar things in future.

Re: Rude Pediatrician @SwissMediKids...how would you react as parents?

Maybe things were getting out of hand and the doctor felt that the mom is just not doing enough...shouldnt the toddler be sitting on mom´s lap or something? He´s not in a playground. Many people would get upset if you expose them to chicken pox even at the doctor´s
