You Make Me Sick

An editorial about the real problem with health care: over diagnosis. If you disagree with me, I'll simply point you in the direction of Acid Reflux Disease. Oh, please. Stop eating cheese-stuffed crust meat pizzas and downing a six pack in front of the tube. Disease meet cure.

C,

If you have problems with a doctor not listening, find another doctor. Ask around, get advice from other people and press on until you get your questions answered.

When the right diagnosis is made, go back to all the other doctors and give them a copy of the correct doctor's report. They need to be educated about your condition.
