What's wrong with medicine today

"I'm just babysitting your father until his knee heals."

Said to me by the physician overseeing my father's rehab hospital stay for a recent total knee replacement.

I'm speechless.

  1. I do believe that's a symptom of what we're dealing with in the medical community. Not just one doctor, the majority.

    Perhaps they, long ago, felt helpless because the "cures" they were taught don't work and now they just mouth their apathy and dispense the medications they've been paid by the drug companies to dispense. Such disillusionment!
