are you sure you aren't venting something here? you are such a source of hard to find info on important PC matters, but i get concerned when you drift back into all this conspiracy theory stuff. just my opinion, but i don't think you will find many people will follow your premises here.
"My uro-doc shipped me to his buddy whom could care less about
my outcome, and was trying to cashin on a vunerable patient(example given above prior)."
This is what you said, just one statement, but even it is so subjective. You were shipped to his buddy - you know for a fact that they have a "buddy" friendship, or did the doc just refer you to someone that he had faith in as the next step? Whom could care less about
my outcome? You know for a fact that this next doctor did not care about
your outcome? How did you determine that? Did he say something, did he do something wrong? And finally, the classic, was trying to cash in on a vunerable patient. So you know for a fact, that this doctor only saw you to make some money off of you, a cancer patient?
Not picking on your exact words as much as how what you are saying would sound to anyone else.
It sounds like an anger based rant, not the sound advice that you dug out in your research and experience.
Most doctors have spent too much time and money becoming doctors. Its a difficult path to become one, let alone a specialist. And in most, if not all, states here in the US, it so easy to sued, or worse, lose their license. So I don't know of a single doctor that is going to act reckless, just to make a quick buck.
I am more worried about
some of the "celebrity" doctors that are promoted on HW on a regular basis, that manage to find time to write books, go on the speaking tours, and do make lots of money on these non-doctoring activities. I am more concerned about
the thousands of good doctors that no one outside of a particular local area, that take care of their patients, and get to know them well on an individual basis.
Brother, I respect your opinions here, and I respect your right to say what you want but in my opinion, all this conspiracy stuff is counter productive, and serves no useful purpose to someone entering HW and seeking help for their PC.
Just my opinion,
David in SC
