You know how we all say LOL? This time I really did. Fun stuff–thank you!
Dr. Judgmental: “Patients are scum.” “I hate that I have to provide care to patients who don’t deserve it.” “Today a drunk patient came into the ED and was wearing underwear of which I did not approve. She is damned forever. I decree it. She is not worthy of my compassion.” “Today a sweet young child came in with both her parents. They attend my church. They are worthy. I am compassionate to them because they deserve it.” So sayeth the Lord our Doctor/God.
Don’t have to travel far to find these blogs. They abound in the ether.
I have found much to admire in the writings of many physicians on the blogs – and much that disgusts me. Still, it’s good to have the curtain pulled back a bit. I appreciate the knowledge that not all doctors care. And, that some care very much more than I realized. I am more wary now, more cautious, more questioning. That is, I believe, a good thing.
Funny! I could take offense to the Dr Mommy blogger cartoon but I won’t.
My Dr. mom blog/website is vary different from posting about my kids. It is meant for the general public, anyone anywhere!
Good stuff though!
LOL, too. Except for Dr. Whiny (examples of this category seem compelled to leave comments here on KevinMD for some inexplicable reason…)
But the cartoonist has missed a category of docblogs: the really good, interesting, helpful, informative, and (most important) actually WELL WRITTEN ones. I’ve found lots of these – they are a delight when patients discover them.
Kevin, I love it !! I placed myself somewhere between Dr Political, and Dr. No longer a Doctor.. My partner is “Cutting Though the Cra” by my friend , Dr Schwab, the agnostic
Haha, love it. I’m still a naive first year, so my blog is Dr. Miracle all the way. I get way too excited when I see patients once a week.
