The Role of Tense Forms in Representing Doctor – Patient Relationships in the English Medical Text (Based on Scientific Articles)

This article deals with the specific use of tense forms in the modern medical text and focuses on their role in representing the doctor – patient relationships. The author comes to the conclusion that tense forms can be used in an uncharacteristic meaning even in the medical text, separating the doctor’s voice from that of the patient.
