Present to six different health 'professionals' and you get 12 opinions.

Dunno. You spend 6 hours waiting in the foyer of Robina Hospital with your bag packed to stay a week on a drip and they say there is no way they are admitting you for a bad case of acne and write you a script for antibiotics which the previous doctor said under no circumstances should you take because the extreme stress of hard core antibiotics will possibly destroy your liver. Then they shoo you out the door.

Flying Spaghetti Monster love the 'health' system. So back to doctor on Monday to get a contrary opinion, and it'll be sit around in hospital foyer again to be told the opposite. Again.

Most doctors are fsucking idiots and have the common sense, powers of observation and caring, of a rotting prawn head. :banghead: And then it's just get on the circus merry-go-round.

No Peter, they are smarter than you, you're just too farking dumb to understand what they are telling you, so you misinterpret what they say and then wonder why your interpretation isn't correct and blame it on the doctor.

Just like all the stories where doctors say "you'll never x again" but they proved the doctors wrong. All a great story except for the fact that more than likely the doctor never said that because doctors rarely speak in absolutes.

Sorry. Wrong. I usually end up herding them towards the outcome that will work, because even I know what they are saying is just way off mark because usually they haven't listened to you, or even physically looked closely at what the problem is. Present with a major skin problem and they don't even get close to it or put on gloves and examine it. Just stare at you and write a script based on what you tell them. It's a fsucking farce.

You tell me genius. With enormous trouble I get shuffled from one place to another with a serious skin condition and every time the story is totally different. And I mean the total reverse. And you can tell all the time all they are thinking about is how they get you out of there quickly with the appearance of care so they can get through all the other patients waiting outside at something close to on time (hahahhahahahahha) so they get home at 1700 for wifey to have dinner on the table with a nice red.

Totally agree. They'd just like a drink.

Medical resources??????? :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: They are sooooo smart.

Only if you get driven into for legal reasons.

I'd rather sit in a pub with the papers and beer and a juke box than waste 5 hours in a waiting room for a quack to give you a lot of B.S that another quack contradicts and refers you to a quack specialist.

Who is smarter?

I dunno what sort of doctors you talk to in your imaginary world, but if I were you I'd try to imagine one who finished uni.

Yeah. That's the solution. Find one who finished a degree 30 years ago and is still all gung ho on their career. :rofl:

Vast majority aren't really interested in anything except writing a script, sending you elsewhere and getting you out of there quickly ASAP so they get another $90 off Medicare to pay for the divorce, investment property and the Merc.

It's like trying to find a decent plumber. They exist, but it's often trial and error to find one.

I always remember when they injected my poor dying Dad with totally the wrong drug in a huge dose through a clerical fsuckup and he went into a temporary coma that nearly killed him. The aftermath with them all arse-covering for the lawsuit (which didn't happen) was almost amusing to watch if it didn't involve my Dad.

You do know that there are around anywhere between 20,000 and 60,000 deaths in this country through total avoidable medical fsuckups in this country every year, yeah?

Ever read of a single one of those going through court? No?

I'd get dragged through the legal system for stealing a pack of chewing gum.

My doctor drives a Subaru. When I see him we have a conversation about the particular ailment and what he thinks is the best course of action. He doesn't talk down to me and he doesn't try to bamboozle me with medico speak - because he knows that I understand big words.
The only problem I ever have is trying not to smile when he does my breast exam. :rofl:

there is none because the medical community don't officially keep records (gee I wonder why).

Talk to them.

Amongst many many others. I've seen it first hand with my father. I know a couple of nurses who can tell you horror stories.

It goes on all the time.

Well that's ultimately always for a court to decide to the nth degree and last death (good luck with that). But quite often what these people say is not far off he truth. Give or take a few 10,000 medical fsuck up deaths.

And sheet man I've seen it with my Dad, heard from front line nurses and friends with their relatives.
