I would have thought so myself. My experience with the medical profession is about 50% good vs sucks.
That's not an answer to my question about which country you live in
As an aside, my experience with the medical profession in Australia, New Zealand and Southern Africa is that it has:
- saved my own life several times, including from an otherwise deadly infection with Yersinia
- saved the life of my wife several times, including from cancer
- saved the life of my daughter at least once (and she's only 13)
- saved the life of my father several times
- saved the life of my mother several times, including from viral encephalitis and most recently in January when she flat-lined before surgery for a twisted bowel that had developed gangrene.
And I'm not counting basic prevention such as vaccinations - I'm talking about serious interventions with antibiotics, surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy - all of which has protected us 100% so far.
I served a couple of years in the South African army doing land mine sweeping and convoy protection to get medical teams safely into remote areas of Namibia and Angola to treat the local populations in war torn areas - in that time I saw many thousands of desperate patients treated - NOT ONE BIT OF IT SUCKED!
I think you are either biased in your perception of medical science or maybe you have an agenda that involves denying credit to medical science.
I think you are biased in your opinion of me and have an agenda to deny giving me credit.
Just my own personal experience here in Milwaukee.
My doctor is interested in giving me drugs for any problems. Little else.
I have permanent scars on my face and across my head because the first 4 doctors misdiagnosed the lesions on my face.
The 5th doctor said...."That is clearly shingles, I wish you had seen me sooner to avoid scars"
Doctor #1 lost the shingles test he sent out and didn't follow up.
My wife was under constant daily care and the doctors knew about the break and didn't notice the infection
in the bone so she lost her leg. Would you like a picture? She was an accountant at a major US hospital.
My brother received counseling. He killed himself.
My step-son received counseling. He started his 2 real job this week.
The first lasted 2 months. He's 25.
