I remember being intimidated by anyone with a Khaki on especially doctors, the ones you need to be honest with as much as possible.

I was doctoral allied health, neverm!medicine, my disability prevented that, I'd wanted to go into the USPJS after residency, we shut my license of sevl urw ago, as you may have seen me mention, I'd love to go back at some point, if allowable, however, I doubt that'd ever be possible at this point, unfortunately....

Why would you be intimidated by a doctor?

It would only make sense if you respected paygrade as an e1 in bootcamp. You do not want to say much and can be scared if you seem less then perfect.

Military doctors are commissioned officers...soooo are you normally intimidated by officers outside of your chain of command?

I can tell you that the same applies to very junior officers confronting "senior" Medical Officers. When I was a young Ensign in flight school, it was VERY intimidating working with the O-3 level Flight Docs...until one of them was nice enough to inform me she had been in the Navy for less time than myself...which allowed me to open up a bit.

I think it all comes down to realizing that we're all human beings after all, and (with some noted exceptions) Docs are pretty much medical professionals first, military officers second.
