I Hate Doctors! They have no clue what they are doing sometimes

Recommended Posts

I go to the doctors to get a physical one day, and this doctor had no idea what to do. So I was sitting there while he kept going back to the main desk thing to ask what to do, or what something was. It ended up taking me 4 hours to get a dang physical.

And my Aunt got SJS(Stevens Johnson Syndrome), she is in the hospital now. And there is not a single specialist at any local hospital, so she is just laying there in a bed, hooked up to a Dialysis (does the work for her Kidneys). And yesterday the doctor's told us her heart was failing, but she is still alive and it's been about 36 hours since then, and they said it was going fast. But, my cousin(her daughter), asked her if she wanted to come home(my aunt can't talk or anything, basically she's asleep), and her heart rate went up and stuff and it looked like she was going to wake up and say something, but she didn't. So all we can do is pray for her. She's fighting it.

To get back on topic, the doctor's told us 3 day's ago she was going to die in a little bit and made everyone go back and say goodbye, but she is still alive. So that just shows how much that doctor knew.

Let's hear your stories why you hate doctors.

EDIT: My aunt passed away on June 16 2008 at approx. 2:20 AM. She is with God now.

SJS or Steven Johnson Syndrome is a life threatening condition, in which cell death causes the epidermis to separate from the dermis.---------The main class of known causes is medication,followed by infections and, rarely, cancers- wikipedia

Yeah a lot of doctors are just clueless and it really annoys me, and also a lot of drugs that they prescribe they only do because they get kickbacks from drug companies. People always become doctors because they want to make a lot of money, but you should only be a doctor if you really want to help people, because that's the only way you're going to be a good doctor.

Im sorry to hear bout your Aunt.I can't say I've actually had that many bad experiences with Doctors. I live in a small country town, and we have limited Doctors, all of whom are transferred often but they are all wonderful people. Perhaps it is different in the City than to the Country...?

yeah i agree i hate doctors as well. once i went to the docter and he had to continuously refer to his book to tell me what to do. the book probably was "the idiots guide to being a doctor". he couldn't tell me anything without looking at his book. the doctors just don't have a clue do they.

I think doctors are alright.When I had to go to the doctors when both my legs started swelling up, the first guy we went to did a few tests, checked my temperature, checked my ears and chest etc. for infection and apparently it was 'clear'. He just said to take this medicine and go home. So we went to the Pharmacy, bought the medicine and I took 2 of the tablets each day.It actually got worse. The next day my coughing got really bad to the point where I was vomiting, I had massive stomach cramps that made it really hard to go outside and I started getting a temperature. The swelling on my legs grew to my ankle and foot and intensified. So my mum booked a visit to the same doctors surgery, but made sure we visited a different doctor there just for good measure. Because I had been wearing long pants that day, once we got there we were shocked at how far it had spread, (from my foot, which was swollen, all the way up to my lower leg). She immediately took action and did a temperature check, and all the other tests, and said it was really bad and I need a blood test and an ultrascan on my leg. (this was about 5PM in the afternoon). We went to the closest blood centre (luckily just around the corner) and I had my blood test (first time I had ever had one) and then at 7PM we had my ultrasound check. We then went home and I started using the new prescription my doctor gave me.Was that it? No.Later that night I got a call from the doctor saying she had recieved the blood test results, and that I had an unusually high amount of white blood cells in my body- she recommended I go to the local emergency department ASAP! When my dad told me, I was really scared... going to a hospital!! Lets put the end of this very briefly-I went to the hospital, they wrote me down and said to wait in the waiting room- 2 hours later (10PM) someone came, then they checked my legs and got all the details and put me in another room while they put a drip into my left hand, and I was in that room for 5 hours as they needed a specialist doctor to see me and he was really busy. By 5AM the next day, they put my into a proper public ward and I had a brief sleep before the sun came up, and I spent the morning in the ward, having a tube in my left hand for the medicine being pumped in. They finally got a room in the private ward available, so in the afternoon I moved to the level above and it was heaven, so much better than the public ward where you share a room with like 4 other people, its especially bad if one of those people is constantly talking in a really annoying voice, making you feel very very on edge and wanting to get a knife and stab someone.I spent another night in hospital (in the private ward) and the next day I had my last course of medicine before they decided I was fit to go home (as my legs had swollen down considerably and I was feeling better) and they gave us a final prescription, and we went and got it and I took those tablets. (They were extremely small, which is good for swallowing. I needed to take 2 tablets, 3 times a day, for the next 4 days). Once the tablets were finished up, it said on the box as my prescription that I don't need any more. The swelling on my legs disappeared and all was well :)A200

I found out my doctor is a real jerk who probably doesn't care if he lets someone die when he could have helped them. Don't expect any help if you are in REAL pain! They seem to run the same tests over and over again, and nothing different. Even if your tests are abnormal, you may be told it is completely normal, so make sure you get a copy of them. I have the run around from so many doctors, some who tell me that something is wrong and need to see a surgeon and then there is him who sasys it is psycholoical.

I am going to see a specialist for condition, in which I have had surgery on. My condition is not curable, I will have to have more surgeries more than likely for it. He seems to think it is curable. Keeps prescribing the same things over and over again, and then I have to go to the ER because the pain reaches a point of can't handle it! I have no relief. This is what happens when he listens to ONE single doctor who only ran ONE test on me and not in the correct area, and said that there is nothing wrong - um although the test indicates different!

Do yourself a favor and ask others about who is a good doctor to go to. Trust me I thought he was the best doctor around and could trust him, and I find now that I cannot.

No, I think doctors are not alright. The guy above is right. They have no freaking idea what they are doing sometimes. I've almost would off been a victim of their stupid behavior. They said I had 'doesn't matter what', and than I went to another doctor and he said everything is OK with me, and he didn't knew why the other doctor have even thinked of that! And once I almost broke my leg, and when I went to the doctor, my dad and I had to wauit for HALF AN HOUR, while the doctors where finishing their 'self-given' coffee break. And than my dad so the one of the doctors' number on their office and he ringed and we listened to the phone ring right next door, and the doctor answered and my dad told her to come. Than we she came to the hall she said:'Oh, there was nobody in the hall half an hour ago.' And in that moment the hall was full of people, can you imagine. And that same day, I have hurt my leg, and she(the same doctor) wrote that I have hurt my foot, so I almost paid twice as much for 'rendgening' because of her mistake. I don't know about the place where you guys live, but in here, doctors have no freaking idea what they are doing. And right now, there's a virus 'eating' mt generation because the kids born between 1989-1997 didn't took a vaccine for a virus who can cause imphotency to mails(that's pretty rare, but it happens)! And now they are blaiming themselves instead of doing something about it! I hate doctors!

That can be very dangerous especially if they give you the wrong medicine!

Try having hypoglycemia or non-Addisonian adrenal fatigue. Then you shall truly see how clueless many doctors are.

hypoglycemia  : Hypoglycemia or hypoglycaemia is the medical term for a pathologicstate produced by a lower than normal level of glucose (sugar) in theblood. The term hypoglycemia literally means "under-sweet blood".

What I know is, many good doctors are not on the best hospitals =) Those on the best hospitals stick with the principles. Those on not really big hospitals and clinics apply what they had experienced with other patients.Well, not all doctors but that's my opinion as what I have noticed.

Sorryy about your aunt. Mine got ovarian cancer, but the doctor kept treating her for the wrong things. Then she went to a different one (after a hysterectomy) for drugs that are still being tested and now she has all bumps on her arms (it's vascular). The medicine also ups the risk of heart attack and stroke and it's making her blood pressure go up really high and the doctor still doesn't want to take her off of it because he wants her stats. o.oAnd then brotherr got sick so he's at the doctor and this little lady walks in and asks him questions for a while. Then she picked a medicine for him, but she wasn't "completely" sure if he should take it or not and to ask a pharmacist. .-.There are some really good and some really bad doctors. You just neeed to know where to find them :3

Did you know medical doctors in the United States are responsible for more deaths than car accidents? This is not my opinion - it is fact. Were it not for the blind faith some are so comfortable with, the white coat would easily steal away the lawyer's most hated professional status. The white coat takes the Hippocratic oath to ?do no harm? upon graduating from medical school, but often prestige and the almighty dollar are his true motivation. Unfortunately, many practioners I?ve had the displeasure of interacting with fall incredibly short of the philosophy of providing quality, caring service to their patients. Then there's the inhuman schedule they must endure as interns. They are taught early on the patient is the "enemy," and to churn out as many patients as possible within the shortest time frame. This sentiment is echoed by MD's the likes of Dr. Rebecca Carlie who have left the profession for this very reason.Personally, I avoid the medical establishment like the plague and strive to maintain enough health to keep me out of their wretched clutches. I don?t need their stinkin? vaccines or relentless drug-pushing. Ever notice how many people suddenly come down with the flu after getting their flu shots? Or how many people end up with pneumonia, staff infection, or worse after being admitted to the dreaded hospital? This is not to say the MD doesn't have his place. He is without equal in the realm of trauma treatment. Naturopathic doctors are another story entirely, as they make a conscious decision to pursue a medical career that actually values the individual. The mainstream doctor usually takes a ?one size fits all? stance that often ends in lethal results for the patient. I imagine most everyone has a horror story to this end, and I am no exception. When time allows, I will tell you what they did to my poor uncle and my own mother, bless their souls.

Well something to consider about doctors is some things they don't know much about. For example, not every doctor can do brain surgery or transplants of liver and stuff.Along with that, some doctors just got out of their medical school and all, so they are not used to being the sole person to take care of a patient. It's a lot different in "the real world."So in terms of not understanding what to do, I can completely understand it.

It absolutely amazes me that doctors in America are held in such high regard. I've gone to tons of them for different problems and it was always the same experience. The doctors were always in a huge rush, didn't look like they particularly cared and just wanted to quickly solve my problem with some sort of pill. The pills doctors have given me have caused me so many side effects and have never worked. I'm then shocked at the huge amounts they charge. I always hear the same crap that they charge a lot because they went to school 10 years or more. Well so what they should get paid for results not because they memorized the name of every bone and muscle in the human body. What engineer gets paid a lot whose bridges collapse but he went to school 20 years? Its the only profession where you can shrug your shoulders say I don't know whats wrong with you but here's a pain killers and my bill.

Yes, there is a reason to hate the present day Doctors. As almost everybody agrees, they are clueless about the diseases in general and person whom they treat in particular!. They are treating for the sake of making the patient believe that they are doing some great thing by making him to undergo numerous pathological and other tests and arrving at a 'conclusion' that the hapless patient has a certain disease, which in their opinion though curable, would inolve a long term treatment. The 'patient' is in a classical dilema of whether to smile (for the fact that finally the learned doctor has pinpointed the particular disease) or to cry (for the fact that going by the statitics provided by other 'patients' of the same doctor, it would be a 'looooong' term of treatment, the cost of which would be difficult even for the God Almighty to arrive at!).In accordance with Ayurveda, you would, to a certain extent, be able to be your own doctor provided you keep a strict watch on your 'thoughts, words and deeds' in order to to bring in a symmetry in them. In addition, you are to have firm belief in God and yourself. There are minor disturbances in the body which are caused by unmindful actions of oneself such as pain in the arms, neck, back, etc which are immediately construed as symptoms or harbinger of a major disease such as Heart attack etc. The first thing a ignorant and wealthy person would do in case of such an eventuality is call for an ambulance immediatley and others who have little less money would be rushing towards the family physician or the nearest hosptial. The 'customer friendly' Doctor would only be a willing associate in compounding the misplaced belief of the so called heart patient by announcing that 'the timely arrival of you have just saved you from a possible death!'. The hapeless victim would be made to undergo all the tests - in accordance with the technical capacity of the hosptial concerned - and finally, if he is lucky enrough, would be allowed to go back home along with medicines weighing nearly a kilogram. You cant blame the Doctors. You must blame yourselves. The Doctors have become doctors by spending a lot of money. They are there to retrieve it with compound interest. When you more than a willing victim to 'assist' him in achieving his goal of life, it is you, who is to be held responsible. Of course, there are good ones among the doctors. But the strength of the class is diminishing very fast - in fact near extinction. God save the humanity from the 'Doctor-shylocks'.
