Default Just goes to figure...

...My doctor is eating crow today. I went to my regular doctor in October about the pain in my feet and knee, the two ass hats that work for U of M's Chelsea family practice said my right ankle was sprained, I got a referral to the orthopedic guy next door and he got an MRI that said it was a ripped planter tendon, that took till Nov. 13th. in the mean time my other foot had been hurting since early Oct (from babing the other foot). so I finally got the referral and appointment so the Ortho guy would look at the left one. what a surprise its got a broken bone in it to. I have been complaining to the doctors for all this time and they just kept discounting my complaint. now I have to go in for another MRI to see if there is other damage to my left foot beside the fracture...I hate fucking doctors, bunch of condescending asshats.

Like being a weather forecaster. You can be wrong and still get paid.

Can't they read a x-ray?

I told my doctor to fukc off 6 months ago after 5 years of him being a prick.

I have wanted to punch him in the face for the last few years after all of his fukc ups.

I go to the doctor like once every 5 years. I had something wrong with my wrist for about 6 months, I finally go in and she looks at it for 4 seconds and says theres nothing wrong and gives me some Alieve samples. Then spends 10 minutes telling me I'm fat. I said "no shit I'm fat, whats that got to do with me wrist"? It hurt for another 2 months and now it clicks all the time. Sweet. I think she thought I was in there trying to get painkillers or something.

Just because they are doctors you still need to do your own homework and keep on top of what they do. They are human and DO make mistakes. For some reason people tend to assume that doctors know it all and are not capable of mistakes. I think they are more so to make mistakes or misdiagnos an illness from fatige from being over worked. I don't trust em and always ask questions until they get pissed at you for asking and then they take the high horse attitude that they are doctors and diserve respect while eating crow at the same time.

well the first thing out of the residents mouth when I was complaining of my pain was, and this is a quote.. "You need to see a nutritionalist!" in other words I' don't want to help you because your fat. so thats where things started back on Oct 15th, so if you see it from my side you will see the treatment hasn't been any better even from the ortho doctor

I miss the good ol'days of going to one doctor. It seems like anymore you whored out to specialists. My dad in So. Cal has 8 doctors. I think we need more general practitioners and less specialized medicine. Seems more personal to me. Just my .02
