Doctor shopping

Came across this particular phrase 'doctor shopping' while glancing through literature on 'addiction'.  It is described as one of the possible symptoms of patients who are treated for addiction.  However, it can also be observed among those who have ailments too.

The basic notion is when people go meet different doctors merely because the one whom they met last did not meet their 'required standards' or they did not find the person to their taste!  It is a bit odd because, when in need of help, one approaches a doctor.  To judge the doctor on the basis of his or her compliance with my 'tastes' and thereby keep changing doctors is only a sign of another ailment, besides the one, someone already has!
