Your Doctor Is Probably Wrong

leave a comment »

Your doctor could not possibly botch a simple everyday diagnosis.

New research shows how odds are, you’d be WRONG!

Turns out many docs are clueless routinely muffing up basic diagnoses and treatments.

Doctors at the Mayo Clinic examined nearly 300 patients who had first seen their own doctors and found nearly 88 percent were the victims of screw-ups.

Just 12 percent had been given a completely correct diagnosis.

In 21 percent of the cases — more than one in five patients — the first doctor’s diagnosis wasn’t even close.

It was COMPLETELY wrong, and the Mayo Clinic had to give the patient an entirely new diagnosis.

In the other 66 percent of the cases, the docs were only kinda-sorta right, getting at least SOME part of the diagnosis wrong.

This isn’t horseshoes OR hand grenades. Close doesn’t count when it comes to your health.

If your doc’s even a little wrong, you could be sicker for longer… get worse … or suffer needlessly with a condition that could’ve been quickly treated IF he knew what he was dealing with from the get-go.

I know what you might be thinking.

Not MY doctor! If he were this bad, I’d sure as heck be able to figure it out, right?

Well… maybe not.

Remember that many common conditions, from pain to infection, cure themselves over time — sometimes, in a matter of days.

So, what does this mean for you? QUESTION EVERYTHING.

You do not have to turn yourself into a pest at the doctor’s office, but you DO have to pepper him with questions until you’re satisfied he’s dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s.

And if you are not getting better, do not be shy about getting a second or even third opinion.

Today’s doctors have little concern for their patients, especially their quality of life.

Their motto:  Get the money while not getting sued.

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.

If the facts make you mad, it could be the truth hurts.

Health Care Costs Crushing Your Health

leave a comment »

Health care costs are sky-rocketing:  health insurance premiums, the copays and the deductibles.

Each year, those costs go up and far faster than any potential increases in your income.

Health care in America is eating up larger chunks of your income, forcing you to more often skip those doctor visits or postpone needed medical treatment.

And forget about wellness visits.

What are you going to do?

Nothing.

Except watch your health deteriorate day by day.

Then die, hopefully not in agony.

OR

Take responsibility for your health.

But you will not.

Why?

Too lazy, and too ignorant.

Too proud with a big ego to ask for help.

Sad.

Real Sad.
