    I get it.

    I think we would all welcome those dissenters and googlers if we had the time to take care of our patients the way she want to.

    I live at the hard edge between those administrative folks thinking we whine too much and we should be more efficient, toe the line, and treat each patient like another piece of the assembly line when all of us know that each person is their own N=1. On my other days I play doctor and know that they are all wrong.

    Thanks for finding that!

    Kind of you to say. We do some things well. There are lots of things we don't, sadly!

    I really want to learn to head this stuff off sooner rather than treat it in the end.

    Funny, I've received the BEST care/diagnoses from these "young" docs. One diagnosed my gluten issues WAY before gluten was "in" and the other said I needed surgery... to this day I can't thank them enough.

    They say that people who go into psychiatry do it to fix themselves ...

    I'm looking for a good program in Quantum Medicine, as I need to keep fixing myself ... :)

    Failing that, so-called Age Management / Anti-Aging Medicine with a significant component of functional and metabolic Medicine looking good ....

    Just need to figure out practice model.

    "An old-time physician whose son had just graduated from medical school decided to pass on some tips about the profession. One day his son accompanied his father while. he was making his hospital rounds. The first patient they called on was advised by his father to cut down on smoking. "How did you manage to come to that conclusion?" asked the son.
    "Just look around the room and observe the large number of cigarette ends," was his answer.
    The second patient was told to stop eating so much chocolate. Again the new doctor was bewildered. "How come?" he said.
    "You don't look," said the father. "If you had you would notice the large number of chocolate boxes all over the place."
    "I think I have got the idea now," said the son. "Let me try the next one."
    A woman, who was the third patient, was informed by the son to cut down on things involving the church, religion, and priests. The amazed father asked his son what led him to that strange conclusion, since the church had not even been mentioned in the conversation, and you cannot find churches all over the place.
    "Well Dad, it was like this," said the son. "Did you notice that I dropped the thermometer? When I bent down to pick it up I could not help noticing the preacher under the bed.""

    There is very much wrong with our NHS but at the moment our politicians are in pre-election frenzy and our health is being treated like the ball in a World Cup final. Blaming each other is better (not to mention easier) than solving the problems. Top score wins but who cares if our health improves?
    Let's hope the medics humour beats them all.......

    @Linz its not much different over here in the US. Currently the "Conservative GOP" is attempting to curtail the Affordable Care Act (which was never about affordable care but affordable health insurance - which isn't affordable at all for anyone) and the "Liberal Dems" are trying to block it, instead of addressing the hart of medical care. JAck is right. change will come from consumers, who at some point will say Eff it, and go ahead buy catastrophic and figure out how to heal themselves....

    Interestingly, the GOP is also backing off on regulation of the supplement industry

    According the medical "bible" - JAMA reports the 3rd leading cause of death is .... Doctors :confused: yikes............

    Journal of the American Medical Association, 284(4), 483-485. (2000, July 26)

    Who has the best healthcare? Japan.... in order: 1 Japan, 2 Sweden, 3 Canada, 4 France, 5 Australia, 6 Spain, 7 Finland, 8 Netherlands, 9 U.K., 10 Denmark, 11 Belgium,12 US, and 13 Germany

    The poor performance of the United States was confirmed by the World Health Organization. The press would have you believe that it is the American lifestyle.. smoking, drinking, etc., but the statistics show otherwise. The top ranking best health care statistics are from Japan and 41% of the women smoke and 61% of the men. US stats are 24% of women smoke and 28% men. The data for alcohol is similar.
