we are patrons of doctors, but they are patronizing. i suppose this is how they react when confronted with difficulty. i wonder if patient turnover isn't a factor also. to deal with anything outside the daily 'system' takes time that can be used for another patient. make sure you don't have more than one problem per visit, or it will slow the doctor down.
but enough sarcasm/truth. the medical system in the u.s. makes businessmen out of doctors. this is like blood for money. this, i believe, creates a bias for treatment based on profit. profit must increase each year, despite morality. the bottom line is not health with the medical field. i hope with naturopathy, health is primary.
