Medical culture is just part of the problem. Medical Insurance and the Pharmaceutical Industry are the other elements. How is it we are in 2017 and a doctor can’t prescribe soap, or certain foods, or effective herbal remedies? Why are our eyes and teeth considered “non-essential?” How on Earth do people continue to pay more but get seen less? How can doctors justify prescribing anything to a patient they get 20 minutes with? Isn’t that worse than self-diagnosis and self-medication? What about costs? In what other situation can you refuse to show a customer the cost of your services and consumables until after the fact? These are many questions with no satisfactory justifications. Medicine in America needs a fundamental reform, in its services, its methods, and the entitlement to “affordable healthcare for everyone” needs to be re-examined.
