Individual needs be damned when there's a goal to meet for someone else of higher value, like the pharma rep and kickbacksI think truth is medical professionals are just humans. They’re portrayed as great helpers but many are just as judgy as anyone else. It’s human nature and surely there should be more sensitivity training. I know great doctors in my family and I also know some that aren’t great. I’ve heard some of them say things like hpv is what nasty promiscuous people get. They wouldn’t say it straight to the patients’ face, but to us as friends and family. So that makes me even more cautious about who I choose as my medical provider. I did trust my midwives 100% I must say. I still use them for my primary care whenever needed which is rare. At this point I learned to shun routine medical visits (I order my labs myself online to see if I’m ok - think CBC, lipid profile; vitamin d and thyroids). No need to go in begging for a D test (not easy to get), saying no to annual paps (that’s not even guidance!), and no to mammograms. Why would I go to a doctor that is judgy and only peddles things I don’t want?!!! Sorry just my overall disappointment with the medical industry being one size fits all and no semblance of individual needs.
