Patrick Dempsey Scared Of Real-Life Medics

Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey is frightened putting his life in the hands of real-life medics - despite playing the role of a doctor onscreen.

The actor admits his time spent in a hospital setting has left him unprepared him for the actual trauma of any health complaints, and has criticised doctors who "don't understand patients' needs".

He says, "It's overwhelming because it's like, there's too many options sometimes. It's like, well, why should I believe the doctors? Shouldn't I get a second opinion? Shouldn't I find a specialist?

"You feel very naive and childlike in a lot of ways.

"You have to give over a lot of power to these people who may or may not understand what your needs are, or care, just because of the volume of work that they're going through."
