I gave up practising medicine 20 years ago. I didn't like the way medicine was practised. Little focus on the patient as a person, more focus on the condition. I think if i was practising now, i would be a very different doctor.
Have you tried some of the alternative medicines?

My wife is a huge fan of homeopathy. I'm not, BUT, I do give her that these doctors are way, way better in the holistic understanding of a human being.
I always imagined that a sort of merge between the occidental and oriental approach to health care would be best.

And he goes "we save lives!" I looked him in the face with biggest death stare I could muster, turned and walked out.
Why didn't you just congratulate him JT. He SAVES LIVES , my God! You were blessed to deliver food to a Savior , bless his heart. Why didn't you just congratulate him JT , for existing , he deserves it. We need to tell him he is the answer to our prayers cos he SAVES LIVES. Oof i need a minute to find my composure.... Just feel so overcome with gratitude for this great man. ^:)^ ^:)^ ^:)^

Fuck that guy JT. @};-
Exactly Idiotic.

I might add that I think my parents (now retired) we’re both very good, if not excellent, doctors. It’s just that this fact doesn’t make one excellent, or even good, at the rest of life. Like someone said upthread, the confidence appears to carry over into all aspects of life...

I guess thinking about it, it'd be kind of tough to keep in mind to turn it on and off constantly.

I agree, but it'd be tough I guess to be a doctor and think "I hope I can save this person's life". It's more effective for them to think "I'm going to save their life" regardless if they actually do, keeps them from being frozen or something. I just think there's probably a happy medium somewhere. Confidence but not arrogance.

Just imagine this lovely workplace...TW!

Original video of officers mistreating Phillippa "Pippa" McCully, then 20;


She'd already had cancer. All I can say is this young lady must have incredible strength.

What is just hilarious is the part where they say it's "not an admission of guilt, it's to avoid further litigation". Right, 'cause it's not like those psychos stood a chance against the video showing them face-slamming a petite 20-year old girl... :-o

He's apparently no longer the sheriff but his flying monkeys insist that the only reason they want him is for his stance toward protection of 2nd Amendment rights. =))

Now I saw the video once, which was very hard to watch, and that just doesn't seem like the kind of thing that should be happening when people are doing their jobs...
