*obnoxious* article about doctor’s pay

I tried to find the comment section, but I couldn’t find it on my phone. Any discussion regarding physician pay needs to include all the cost involved with practicing medicine, *none* of which this article addresses. It’s just playing on the public’s misconception that doctors have this easy life, making the quick buck…

Doctors have become an easy target in our society of miserable people. Lets attack the doctors who have it so easy.

It’s so obnoxious, I almost threw my phone I was so pissed. As a patient who knows how much my doctors do for me without compensation, this article is insulting to me too–

It’s definitely time I finished my book on the medical field…I’m about half way finished. Articles like this are evil, because they’re ignoring the rest of the facts (like time to get insurance approvals, research, phone calls, all the things physicians are expected to do without compensation–) This is a big reason why new doctors don’t want my case. They know I’m a big unpaid headache. And it’s people like me who are desperate for good doctors.

This article is just horrific–someone needs to forward it on to the medical associations–

About hopeforanswers

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
