How do priests but also doctors they cope confidentiality but also doctors cope with the confidentiality of secrets entrusted to them?

Lying in general is a sin and depending on the matter, level of knowledge, etc it can be a grave one.

That said, lying to your doctor is primarily detrimental to you as a patient but can negatively impact the doctor's ability to treat you and thus potentially create a grave situation for them should substantial harm Coke to you because of a lie.

The reason lying to a priest is a grave sin is because if you willingly go to confession and withhold a sin then not only does it invalidate your confession but it also creates another grave sin and really puts you in a position where you've willingly chosen to remove yourself from God’s grace.
