The Burden is the Patients
Almost everybody has a “dumb doctor” story. Some are funny (in retrospect), some are tragic, and some can enrage even a mild-mannered person. The old days where the doctor surveyed the clinical scene from high atop a pedestal are over. That may be good news since other clinicians and natural health practitioners have a lot to offer, but it also puts the burden on us, the patients. We need to learn what we can, speak up, and weigh the options.
