I’m not particularly fond of the family doctor and I haven’t been for quite some years. I have tolerated him however for the sake of ease but recent events have pushed to rethink why we still keep him as our doctor or why he is allowed to practice as one in the first place. Why do I doubt his competence?
He says, “So what if it is cancer? It doesn’t matter if it’s cancer unless it’s in your head.”
When asking about my mother, “How is he?”
When asking about my father, “How is she?”
“What will the x-ray show? Even if it shows an ulcer it doesn’t matter. Ulcer is nothing, you can’t do anything about it. You can take some more of that white stuff. You know the white stuff. I’ll write you a prescription for white stuff.”
