All well & good as long as they actually look at it

Many neighborhood, older clinic type of doctors, seem clueless...

You tell them you have this ache, and that pain...and they have the gall to sit there and tell you 'Nothings wrong'....

Talk about lazy and condescending...

To tell you nthing is wrong, without as much as running a single test...show arrogance...at the expense of your health...

Just because descriptions given by patients, is outside of Doctors recognized expertise...they shouldn't play with your health by just dismissing it all as being 'in your head'....

Just to find out 2 months later you had early signs of cancer or some blood disease or a tumor or whatever...

Whatever happened to Doctors doing research on patients descriptions?

Expecially in this information age...

It seems like now, more and more patients have to do their own research...basically do the Doctors homework for them...

I have lost a lot of faith in neighborhood clinical doctors...they seem clueless...

And unwillingly to actually do research anymore, into patients symptomns, until your half dead...

I went to a doctor recently, and aside from spending the majority of time just being moved from one empty room to another...they did absolutly nothing I could of done myself...

That's why I think 'blood diagnosis' centers or labs are becoming more popular with regular citizens...

Cause you can skip all the waiting room or doctors office waiting around stuff...and just get to the point...'am I sick or not?'...

And if I am sick, what do I have? and what medication will cure it?

It's that simple...

The doc today almost got combative...at me doing my homework and actually talking to them as an 'equal'...rather than some dumb blind subject, who just sits there clueless...

Some of these older doctors don't realize we live in the 'information age' now...

Its no longer 'Leave it to Beaver' era...
Where you walk into office, and everything they say is in stone, and cannot be questioned...

And these older docters still rely on 'touch and feel' to determine if something is wrong or not...

Many viruses, cancers, blood disease, pathogens, parasites ect ect...can be detected by simply 'touching' someones body...

I mean come on...

Why wouldn't a competent Doctor know this?

At least sites like this...'WebMD'... allow you to enter symptomns, and then automatically compiles possible causes for you...way more helpful than what most Doctors seem to want to do anymore...
