    We All Want Justice

    I don't trust doctors either. Everyones just looking for justice and they want compensation for the work they went through. Doctors just dont care as well as the rest of humanity.

    Experience has taught me that trusting doctors is a no-no. I don't care how many letters they have after their name or how many diplomas they have hanging off their wall... I know how easy it is in our current economy to BUY stuff like that from the internet. I've got several...

    All About the Kickbacks.

    I've had bad experiences with all types of doctors. Most of the time they never listen to what I have to say. Today I visited my neurologist for the first time. I've had a never-ending migraine for the past year and chronic lower back pain. I was diagnosed with sinus polyps a...

    Lack Of Trust

    I don't hate doctors but the trust part is another thing.  I'm not saying they don't know what they're doing cause most of them do.  The one's who aren't that great is cause either they became doctors for a reason just to say they are doctors and have the title or did it for...

    I'm definitely ruling out fibromyalgia

    and RA. My pelvic muscles are tight and actually hurt. It seems as if all my muscle and bone pain is spreading to unlikely places. I have given up on seeking medical help.

    I pretty much refuse to go to the doctor anymore. I'm beyond the hope that they will find the answers they are looking for. I would rather die not knowing the truth, then to be put through hell while they try to figure it out.

    I Don't And Can't Trust A Doctor's Judgment Anymore

    I hate to say it, but I don't trust doctor's judgment anymore due to bad experiences- all rolled into the space of three long years of illness, confusion and loss... I was mis-diagnosed as having nothing wrong and was in hospital, lying there like some kind of prisoner for...

    They're Lazy.

    They all want to be like Grey's Anatomy.  You go in and they rush you in out.   Then they rush a diagnosis that is usually not even right.

    why I don't trust them and this doctor guy came talk to me, saying that I should trust them and stop cutting (which I've done, already). So I said cutting calmed me down and he asked if I had a boyfriend, 'cause that might be calming, as well. I said no, but I thought he meant a...

    They Never Want To Run Tests??

    I may only be 20 but I have had plenty of negative experiences with doctors. One of my biggest problems is that they never want to run a test on me, even though common sense indicates they should. When I was 3 I fell from a 6 foot slide and landed on my head, I was diagnosed...

    They don't care about you, your problems or why you are there all they want is your insurance info and if you are self pay they want the money up front! Hospital is no different, they treat you like you are garbage though they are suppose to be care givers? Act like you are...

    Doctors do not care about you!

    This goes for general practitioners and psychiatrists. They are under the influence of greed and profit. Big pharma has destroyed them and the mere goal is to get a patient hooked for life by means of whatever it takes. You have pain? Here's an OxyContin! Can't sleep? Here's...

    Other Options From a Crazy Alternative Medicine Fan

    It's not that I don't like doctors or think they're bad people-- I'm a pretty "live and let live" type of person. But I think as a modernized society too many people run to doctors and specialists for pills. Now, I'm obviously not a doctor- but I do believe that our...

    I Could Never..

    Visit the doctor, even as a child.   I think if I were in a bad accident I'd rather die than go to the hospital.  There's no way any amount of physical pain could be greated than the anxiety I feel when I'm in the care of a professional physcian.
