  • I am a scheduler for a Doctors office in my hometown and I see the fights that my doctors have to have,FOR their patient. It should Never be the case that A patient can't receive medicine prescribed by their doctor because their insurance says No. Who the hell gave these none medical degree "Gods" the right to say what treatment a patient needs over a Doctor!? I hate seeing that. It is so unfair! So unprofessional. And there is nothing the doctor can do about it. Corporations have become too powerful.

  • Her statement of "I wasn't doing this for myself, I am advocating for all of the other [health care professionals]" is the precise mindset with which physicians are able to operate in the demanding environment of healing, yet is why the suffering is so intense. "In the service of others, physicians often forget to care for themselves-and work through illness, including mental illness. Yet, physicians are human, too, and need care like anyone else." www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6690303/#!po=0.909091 At the very, very least, COVID has taught the general public the value of medical professionals, and the applause of millions is finally being professed, as it should have been all along. If engaging in the service of improving the lives of patients is so demanding and depleting that doctors are forgetting the value of their own lives, then we have a BIG issue. Veneration of profession with simultaneous denial of humanity is an exercise in socialized insanity, and will indeed lead to the collapse of the system which rests on the strength of the education, stamina, dedication and skills of health care workers, to the detriment of all. Humans: you spend less than 6 hours per year with your doctor, yet you are in your body 24 hours per day. They cannot remedy in one appointment the ailments which plague you constantly without active engagement with the medical advice you have sought. Conversely, you are the only one who lives in your body, and staunch self-advocacy can save your life. You will be best served by working WITH your physicians, creating relationships and rapport, and above all else, take care of the people who take care of you. Gratitude and Grace, so they say.

  • Doctors, and I mean actual medical doctors, are honestly one of the closest thing we have in real life to gods. To me it's absurd how people give more praise to some random guy or girl twerking on a stage than to the people who have actually conquered death by using medical science. Try living before medicine was a thing, before we knew about cells or vaccines. Most people died back then to diseases and injuries that are a joke to us know. No, living in this era of medicine is without a doubt a huge privilege we all have.

  • I used to want to be a doctor, I studied Latin as a kid, medical terminology. However nowadays I starting to lose my respect for doctors/medical professionals. Its nothing to do with billing or not taking their expertise seriously. I have had so many bad experiences with them being disrespectful towards me and my family. I have had doctors yell at me until I'm speechless when I thought I was starting to have a heart attack. They kept saying that I must've been on drugs because it didn't make sense why my heart was that fast. I have never done drugs in my life. They thought I was lying. It was very offensive to me because my parents are drug addicts and no longer in my life because of it. My dad was once on a bender and was about to lose his life on the table. He told the medical professional he didn't feel good. They ignored him, and disrespected him. He then aid he felt tingling all over his body and then saw black. He died. They brought him back to life. Since then my dad doesn't trust medical professionals. A lot of health care professionals don't want to take care of addicts, alcoholics, or people having mental breakdowns. I have litteraly heard them say its not their job. They also tend to label honest people, like me, countless times, as lying about drug use and other symtoms. I am outraged, and fed up. I constantly just dealt with it labeling it their stress and excusing their behavior. Constant eye rolling, cutting into me talking, and outright ignoring. I've always thanked them graciously and taken them seriously. They have not done the same in return. That is why my respect is gone.

  • So if doctors know that insurance is the problem, why are they speaking up? As patients, insurance companies know we will pay for it, but doctors can't be silent on this issue. I also want to state, that yesterday I was refused by several doctors. Not because of insurance or because of doctors, but because the admin office didn't like me. What do you say about that Dr. Mike?

  • A doctor left my mother permanently paralyzed and got paid for it without any consequence. No other doctor wants to help her. I will hate doctors for the rest of my life. Doctors are only as caring as the insurance companies that own them allow. How many have died because of doctor error? Or how many have died because they cannot get the medicine they need? You ARE the enemy. You sell yourselves to the insurance companies. I hate doctors!!!

  • Not living in the US, but still feel like some of what's being said is pretty much my current thought-process about my future. I should be deciding in the next year or 1,5 years what to do: Keep going the field of engeneering or study. I am having basic medicine classes already and I like them, I am in the top 5 students of said class but I don't want to study 12 years to work overhours, do loats of administration and be partly underpaid IF I get a university place at all... I feel like this field is sadly becoming less attractive and the public view on some doctors does not help. Big respect to all the doctors or students out there that made that jump!

  • A lot of doctors come off as douchebags who don't care and just want to rush you in and out. My worst experience was with a dental surgeon. He was telling me what teeth he was going to pull, and I was worried he was saying the wrong ones. Hecwas getting frustrated with me, and gotxan attitude when I mentioned I was misdiagnosed with a bleeding disorder. But that I was tested later and shown to not have it. He said I'd need a test showing ai didn't have it and go through with getting my wisdom teeth pulled. He had a whole attitude anout it, and with my uneasiness of it all. I eventually waked out in anger and asked for a different doctor for my second appointment. I got a call a few days later from that clinic pretty much saying they didn't want to provide service to me with any doctor. So I had to find some place else. Which the guy I did find was very understanding and nice. Unlike the first one.

Not going to say his name, to respect his privacy, but Dr. M (and you too, dr. mike), you're great!

I’m 13 when I was 11 or 12 I sprained my ankle and I waited over 5 hours to be seen by a doctor and when I went in there weren’t even enough beds which was another problem and one of the reasons that the EMERGENCY ROOM was so slow... second reason is there was only one doctor and second came a couple of hours later and it’s really sad you having to choose wether to go to the hospital or go home and deal with yourself.. the way I see if going to the hospital is an option then you should go... yet the wait the pain that you’ll have while waiting you have to think if it’s worth it or not... it’s not like it’s a poor territory you know... it’s really sad

Maybe that's why there are so many medical negligence cases.

  • I understand and agree with most of what you both said, but I think that something is missing. Not all doctors are like you describe, unfortunately. Sadly, some of them do put self-interest before their quality of care. I think this is something that people are reacting to as well, and not just to increases in healthcare costs and the other reasons you mention. I believe it is important to keep this in mind in order to understand the frustration and anger of us patients comprehensively and more accurately. It is also important to voice this to bring attention to the issue that so many of us are aware of and fighting against-that is, doctors acting in violation of their hippocratic oath. Again, this is in correction and addition to what you both said, to which I pretty much agree.

  • I feel like it should be illegal for insurance companies to deny payment for anything that a doctor deemed medically necessary. As you’ve explained on your channel, part of your focus as a doctor is making sure NOT to order unnecessary tests. Also! Insurance companies are not treating that patient! They’re not the patients doctor, they don’t have that relationship with the patient, and the denials are often for little picky clerical reasons like the wrong code. The rules insurance companies write are made to obstruct things getting paid for. They’re parasites. What kind of company makes a PROFIT off sick people? Why aren’t insurance companies nonprofits? Human lives need to be centered as the most valuable for the company, not their profit margin.

  • I defintely agree with a lot of what you are saying but I think if you are gong to compare how much Canada is spending on their health care you really need to compare the different health care systems and the issues they both have. I live in Canada and we have some of the longest wait times at the ER as well as to get a doctors (my 60 year old father has been waiting 3 years for a doctor) and surgery times (my mother just had back surgery after 3 years of waiting and her ability to walk being very long and painful in those three years), this is because the government cut scosts anywhere they can and places they shouldnt to save money even when it is puting womens lives at risk. We used to have and might still one of the largest c section rates nd many people have to travel an hour to the hospital if anything happens like myself as well as my 85 year old gran mother and we don't live close together.

    • In the future? That is relative. You mean by the next year? Next decade? In the following 50 years? This whole thing is the defintion of uncertainity (and by "whole thing" I mean the whole situation that the US is in right now. The description below should make you understand what I mean). There is no other time in history to which we could relate the 21st century's problems. So the future is just... unexpected. No theories can be accurate for what the future holds. It is also very easy for governments to keep it's civilians under corruption. China is a very good example. Not to mention North Korea (it doesn't matter if they're communist). The US doesn't seem to focus on it's people's demands anytime soon, for example the health care. Even though their military is the best in the world and it's still undergoing on continous growth and enhancements, the soldiers have been upset about the wantage of trustworthiness inside the country, for example about the rights they should have (carriage of guns for example. Contrast: meanwhile in the Syrian war the US gives pretty much freedom of what they do, because they trust them). So we could gather up a bunch of areas like Healthcare and Military where serious tweaks and changes should be made. Only time will tell when politicians will consider these as serious issues and looking for solutions. I think the US should calm down with the military stuff, because it doesn't need further serious improvements if it is the supreme power in the world.

  • I think you are correct in regards to the multifocal reasons to which healthcare is so expensive, but in Canada, because the physicians bill through the provincial health care plan there's an abundance of inappropriate ordering and billing which does add to the overall cost of public of health care. I'm not saying that physicians shouldn't be respected, in fact, they are crucial to the system but not all physicians have clean hands in this respect.

  • I work in medical billing and it always amazed me at how little the patients understand how their insurance works. They immediately blame the doctor or the billing company for a lot of the costs when in reality it's the insurance. That's not to say that some offices handle billing patients and self pay patients poorly but they are just trying to make money for their services. I dont think we need universal healthcare run by the government but I do think that big pharma and these insurances need to be controlled better and regulated properly.

  • I think the stereotype of doctors going golfing is because every once and a while you experience it. I had the first appointment of the day at 9am. I watched the waiting room fill up and the doctor come strolling in after 10 and he didn't see me until after 10:30. When I talked to the front desk nurse, she said this was the daily routine. I guess it never occurred to this doctor that if she showed up for work at 9, his waiting room wouldn't fill up and his wait times wouldn't be so bad. And before someone asks, the office closed at 4.

  • The tools you're equipped with can really help alleviate this suffering. Fields that were once backbreaking are now significantly less so because of innovation. Unfortunately the medical field is slow to innovate partly because of this whole insurance system. It's only rational that people would choose not to enter into a field like this when there's a myriad of other careers which aren't so unnecessarily gruelling.

  • Just frustrated that I don't get to see a real doctor anymore. Have been with my doctor's office 2 years, and only have ever met with Nurse Practitioner. She is good, and I feel thorough, but if push comes to shove I would at least like to establish a rapport with the physician. I have fibromyalgia, (since 1986), an SI joint that has been fused so also see a pain specialist for injections, and am on an opiate for pain relief. I have a signed contract with the pain doc and haven't abused the meds in the 10 years I've gone there. I also deal with RLS, and the whole gambit of accompanying fibro problems, alternating IBS, GERD, poor sleep low level depression, Raynaud's, etc. MY blood pressure is normal, I'm 5' 5" at 120 pounds. I walk 3 times a day, and have been in recovery from drinking 37 years, and am 65 years old. When first diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which was often a 7 or 8 in my pain scale I ended up in a psych unit for a few weeks after a year of the pain...and thankfully thru an anti depressant and therapy I overcame successfully. I was able to get off the anti depressant after a year. A 30 day outpatient program at a Rehab Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan for chronic pain also lowered my baseline pain to a pretty constant 3, although I do get flares from time to time with weather fluctuations. Now, finally to the meat of it, a previous doctor who retired took over my meds from the psychiatrist I had seen who prescribed me klonopin for anxiety. Because I was also given flexeril for fibro flares, my current NPR doesn't want to give me the klonopin, and said the doctor she practiced under would be better prescribing it because she was more familiar with the idiosyncrasies of fibromyalgia. A week later I get a letter from the Physician who says she's retiring... I had a wonderful discussion with my pharmacist who told me about serotonin syndrome and fully understand the dynamics. I don't take the flexeril and klonopin at the same time, as a matter of fact a flexeril script of 30 tabs plus refills often end up with me not refilling it, and pills left at the end of refill expiration date. I am judicious about my meds, don't take the break through Norco, (again, a 30 day script will last 3 to 4 months) unless my hip pain is extreme. This is usually 2 weeks before and after my quarterly injection. My anxiety comes from PTSD of an auto accident, physical abuse and rape from my drinking career,caretaking for my parents and husband's death,s, 2006, 2009, 2011, and then my resulting disability in 2013 for my hip and fibro. I made $21 per hour, and now my income is down to 1700 per month. Tell me who wouldn't have anxiety from time to time... I attend regular AA meetings, am a Stephen Ministry Leader at my church, and have great friends, and a Jack Russell who keeps me moving. With all that, I am pissed that big Pharma and insurance micro manage my care without seeing me as a human DOING, who happens to have moments a few times a week when I get overwhelmed and need half a klonopin to get me through, and even more, has overwhelmed you poor doctors to the point where I am just a patient's name, not even a face! Please forgive the rant, but I pray for the day I can see an understanding GP once or twice a year. BTW, my pain doctor understands, and has taken over prescribing my klonopin. He has gotten to know me, and we have a wonderful trusting doctor patient relationship. Wish he were a GP!

  • Hello Dr. Mikhail V. , I have been trying to contact you via text- not sure if you received/read my message? I was deliberately, maliciously, criminally, medically harmed on 2 occasions: in 2005 in ME & 2015 in VA. It was instigated/orchestrated by my former boyfriend/ a CA attorney who comes from a "medical" family and may have used his family connections against me. I was forcibly/unjustifiably assaulted then drugged unconscious at the 2 medical facilities. I was sexually assaulted and harmed while unconscious. I am a victim/subject of human experimentation. Though I agree that some criticism of doctors is unwarranted- doctors are in incredible positions of power and in my experiences have abused those positions of power. There is widespread sexual abuse in the medical community: See Atlanta Journal Constitution - 2016 series, "LICENSE TO BETRAY". Though I am sure you are not one of the abusers Dr. Varshavski, and I HAVE MET MANY WONDERFUL DOCTORS IN MY LIFE - LIKE DR. ANDREW WEIL, unfortunately being a doctor is not an automatic blank check to be not subject to criticism because ALL DOCTORS DO NOT HAVE INTEGRITY. I have been searching for a doctor for 4 years to help me in reversing the medical harm done to my body/soul in 2005 & 2015. So far I have gotten little significant help. I have been re-victimized; I have had doctors here in NY scream at me to get out of their office because I'm wasting their time; I have had other doctors flatly refuse to help me. They seem afraid/leery to get involved in any situation involving litigation. ALSO they seem afraid to threaten reputations of CRIMINALS WITH MEDICAL LICENSES. There have been many complicit medical personnel involved in COVERUPS OF THESE CRIMES. THERE ARE INDICATIONS DOCTORS HAVE PROFITED FINANCIALLY OFF THE EXPERIMENTS THEY HAVE DONE ON ME. WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO ME HAS DESTROYED MY LIFE. I AM A VISUAL ARTIST. I AM NOT SHOUTING - CAPITALS ARE FOR EMPHASIS. THEY HAVE STOLEN OVER 15 YEARS OF MY LIFE!!! YOU ARE A WONDERFUL PERSON/ DOCTOR, DR. VARSHAVSKI, BUT NOT ALL DOCTORS DESERVE COMPLIMENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I do my absolute best to be as respectful as possible to everyone who helps me while I am being treated but I’ll be honest the doctors (especially the men) are the only ones who have ever been brutally mean to me. For years doctor after doctor told me there was nothing wrong with me, that I was a liar and taking away from other patients and when finally someone (a nurse practitioner) sat down and listened to my whole history and actually looked at my body and discovered I needed immediate brain surgery. Doctors have a hard job for sure but a startling number of them think that their degree means they are the be all end all of information, and that it gives them the right to look down on and be rude to a patient that they just don’t know enough about to treat.

  • This is BS. Doctors are insulted cause of their big god like egos. Stop acting like @ssholes to the patients. Treat them how you would want to be treated.
