I hate doctors! There I said it. That was liberating. Everyone should give it a try. Most doctors are pretty cool, they do great jobs, most of the time. There should be a law about doctors who let their practices get so big that they have to take in physicians assistance, nurse practitioners, and voodoo witch doctors. My brother has been seeing the same doctor for the last 10 years. He went there because someone told him how great she was. He has never met her! Isn't that against the law?
Do you pay the same when don't see the doctor? You pay less if you go the barber school instead of a real barber. I don't even pay the same for a snowball if my regular snowball lady isn't there. Who pays if the assistant can't take care of it and you have to go back again to see the doctor who, as irony would have it, is the one you wanted to see in the first place? Does the doctor charge a consultation fee if the practitioner has a question about your care?
Doctors should have to give you a copy of all the testing facilities, labs, lasers, cat scan, mri and death star machines they have financial interests in. Do OBGYN docs own the sonogram machines that are used for the mandatory test they are going to send pregnant women for. They don't just send them for one either. There is always something that needs further study.
Everyone has gone to have a mole looked at with a dermatologist. Has anyone ever not had at least one that wasn't suspicious? You will have to have at least one shaved off, but then there will be a question about the edges. They have to take a little more of the surrounding area. You pay for an office visit each time you go too. Each time the samples are sent to a lab, or a tea reader, or someplace. Who owns those places? Does the doc get a kick back? Are you able to find these things out?
Medicine hasn't been the same for me since Dr. Miceli used to have me point my finger at the doorknob when he gave me a shot so the pain would go through my body and out my finger into the door! Ah, memories. We didn't get sent for tests every time we went to see him. We didn't see his assistant or practioner. I don't think he even had a nurse? We may not have gotten cutting edge technology from doctors like him, but you always felt better when you left.
