I'm glad you questions things like this. I don't want a doctor that's going to take my life and his or her skills for granted. Fuck that. I want doctors to give a shit and be worried.

I like to think my doctors always know what theyre talking about. i know they dont, but i like to think they do.

ouch

sounds like she was having a tough day.

doctor doctor

I have friends who are studying medicine and they work really hard at trying to get everything into their heads, there is so much that can go wrong that to expect a doctor to be able to diagnose on the spot what is wrong is pretty unreasonable, unless its something super obvious.

cross words

the constant worry of making a mistake and being sued would be too much for me. think i will stick to the crosswords, which is frustrating enough.

proper attire

looks like the people in the photo are wearing socks? that cant be hospital uniform?

I appreciate the difficulty and understand the vulnerability here, but that's why doctors get paid the bucks. we pour our an enormous portion of our wages into the health system so we can trust the expertise of these professionals.

Dr Duh

This article is absolute nonsense. Doctors, like Mechanics and other skilled proffesionals are trained to be problem solvers, eliminate the symptoms until you find the cause. This person is a buffoon and should be a Barista instead of a medical "professional". Idiot.

As a wise Dr's wife once said to me "Why do you think they call them practicing physicians?"

agreed. Docs and modern medecine know much less than we want or believe them to. We like to think we can rely on these things for good health, but honestly you have to take year health into your own hands, watch what you consume and eat, mostly, as well as the rest and exercise and air you are breathing. Unless you have a chronic illness or are in some kind of accident, don't wait till you have to use one of these guys to worry about your health -by the time you get there its already too late and the meds might make it worse. Bottom line: don't truse docs with your health.

Interesting to get some insight into the mind of a doctor. Always wondered if they felt human or acted as god.
