Even Though The Donald Might Sue Me For Stealing His Catchphrase ...

Over the last couple of days it dawned on me ... I get some kind of sick, twisted, deep down, pleasure-filled enjoyment out of firing doctors.

I'm not a huge fan of the profession to begin with but when I end up in a room with those that have an ego or attitude that clearly entered the room before they did (and hardly fitting through the door), they are on very thin ice. They'd better be damn good at their job for me to put up with that kind of crap.

And the ones that think they have pulled off humble well enough to fool me? Try again. I've got a bullshit meter like you wouldn't believe. Be genuine or find a new patient to pay for your malpractice insurance.

The ones that really irk me are the ones who think my medical care should be done on their schedule. I understand that there are a lot of patients and only so much time in a day. Tests take time, procedures can't always happen this instant, some insurance companies limit reimbursement for office visits, etc. But there is no reason under the sun that I should have to come into the office for a very simple test result that does not require a discussion of treatment options. And when you don't call my insurance company for days on end after promising to call the day I was in your office ... it is the last straw. You are now fired. You are not so special that my test results cannot be transfered to someone who actually feels like being responsive to patient needs.

While I'm at it ... when you are from country A, attended medical school in country B, and practice medicine here in the States with that kind of attitude ... I have every right to question your reputation, your credibility, and your medical record. If you don't like it, tough shit ... My ass in this chair means you are getting paid. I will gladly fill someone else's pockets that actually gives a shit about the person in the chair if you just can't be bothered.

(With rants like these, I may grow up to be just like Uncle Jimbo before I know it)

you tell 'em sis. Asshat doctors are my LEAST favorite people. Not the least of which is that they are hypocritical lying scumbags for the most part.

Not doctors as a whole, just the asshat ones.

I am feeling especially fortunate that I have had no need to see a doctor for myself or my daughter... unless of course you count that visit to the ER with a 2 inch deep, 8 inch long gash in my thigh... where I sat after being triaged for 12 and a half hours... only to be told it couldn't be stitched shut because I was about 3 hours late. Ahem.

Went to a Nurse Practitioner and she fixed me right up.

Nope. I have NO faith in doctors; did I mention I was married to one?

Fire Away Princess Cat!

Hmmmm. You're MIA. Hope you're just really busy firing doctors and celebrating your good deeds.

Happy Friday.
