After the Covid debacle, you would think that our medical professionals would be a bit more humble, after seeing what they wrought on the public after that debacle.
Over-counting deaths, failing to use common, available medicines, putting the general public at risk due to a lack of routine care, or deferred care. After seeing the piss-poor performance of the medical profession diruing that disaster, it's a wonder that any of us have any faith at all.
And yet, like much our aging population, I am forced to deal with medical doctors on a regular basis. Much more regular than I'd like. They refer nilly-willy, passing the buck from one specialist to another, without even so much as a howdy-do to the patient. Seeing as many patients as they can see on a daily basis, Most of them don't even know my name, without looking at a chart, or more likely these days, a tablet.
It's pure retail medicine. Mazimize profits
I used to hold medical doctors in high regard. To say that these days I am only mildly disillusioned would be a stretch.
