This is about the medical profession.
These jobs are tough. No one believes you. Everyone asks for a ‘second opinion’.
I just finished watching the second season of House MD, and it just confirmed my observation. I wonder how an architect, an engineer or an artist would feel if someone ‘viewing their work’ would ask for a ‘second opinion’.
Many people still call psychology an ‘inexact’ science. What they may be unaware of is that only a handful of diseases have ‘absolute’ cures. Otherwise, doctors treat mostly the symptoms. Leave aside the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)! That’s how the common cold still has no cure!
A doc’s job is very tough, especially if he’s a diagnostician! Generally, people themselves seem to determine what disease they have, and visit doctors accordingly. Were I a doctor, I would never have reacted positively to this practice. Then again, I don’t know who exactly I am. So I can’t comment.
So, this is my humble advice to those who demean or debase doctors: Please have a little more respect.
