My doctors often say unprofessional stuff – it’s why I keep them on.
For example, my gynecologist often goes on rants about how much she wishes women would stop and think before “ruining their lives by having babies”. She’s so exasperated it’s both sad and hilarious.
One of my specialists once told me he used his rich patient “s insurance to subsidize the poor people who couldn’t pay, so I shouldn’t have to worry about being in a startup because he’d be able to see me “no matter what”.
A neurologist once told me she loved seeing me because “my migraine patients are like break time because they’re not terminally ill, so I get to see them year after year.”
Same doctor: “Remember: alcohol may intensify the effects of this medication (big wink).”
Those are just the things that come to mind. I’m sure there are others.
Doctors are human beings. They’re not robots.
