OK, a completely useless column. Except fof this quote from an MD: "...in the end, medicine is a business."

It's not about helping people.

It's not about putting their patients first.

It's not about practicing good medicine.

It's about maximizing profit.

It's about triple booking appointments.

It's about 5 minute visits for $250.

It's about seeat-of-the-pants diagnoses and no followups.

It's about pushing patients into tests and services that MDs are heavily invested in.

It's about overprescribing medications and getting kickbacks.

It's about using human beings to maximize personal wealth at the expense of the sick and elderly.

It's about scheduling C-Sections when not medically necessary so that you don't have to get out bed to deal with the stochastic timing of natural birth.

It's about telling a prostate cancer patient that they will have surgery in 4 months.

It's about calling national medical care "communist" and "rationed" when in reality that's the system that they control and desire here.

MDs are one corrupt set of SOBs. They blame everyone but themselves, interesting when they are the point men in the system. Gone are the days when people respected the profession.

You tell your MD that you didn't like the wait, and you get just what the lady in the article got: ditched.

The system is sick, and MDs are killing people every day. Don't get sick my friends, as they'll finish you off and never bat an eyelash.

Doctors Have Split Diagnoses About Patients Sick Of Waiting.
As a follow-up to this, a treatment of emailing with doctors should be made.
Some do, some don't.
I love those that do!
