Advice For Women About Doctors

Surprisingly, this comes from CNN.  I rarely see things from them that are either wise or healthy... they usually promote the "fad-du-jour".  These five points are pretty good for anyone, but especially women.

I'll be looking to see if they can make it two in a row.

1 I hope they pulled that MD's license.   If there's blood, it can't be IBS, almost by definition.

And what that girl went through for ten years makes me shudder.  The only bright side is that she escaped steroids in her growth years.
(Did I ever mention I have Crohn's?)

2 Yes, you have... and I know how much it sucks.  Crohn's is dismissed as psychosomatic far too often.  The doc in this case is not likely to lose his license, but the family should consider a malpractice suit to recover excess costs along with pain and suffering.  The frivolous lawsuits drive me crazy, but this seems merited.

Not that I had seen before.

Ya' know, sometimes even the cases with merit just aren't worth it.

4 But bad doctors need taken to task.  If the AMA or State Board of Medicine won't do it, the consumer has to.  Mis-diagnosing someone for 10 years is bad, but what else did he screw up?
