Any one have any clue as to why it costs so much to go to the doctor? You stuck a Popsicle stick down my throat and assuming I didn’t have health insurance, I would have to pay you nearly 100 dollars? Screw you. What are your overhead projections here? Yes, I understand medicine can be a costly venture, which is feasible. If I can be willing to pay 60 bucks for a great steak, I’m pretty sure I can foot the bill for generic prescriptions.
Maybe if you decided to worry about the patient; the reason I am sure you joined the profession in the first place, you would get a lot more out of it. Don’t empty your wallet; I don’t want your pity, just a change of the status quot.
Now, I get that major surgery and things of the like can be expensive. But the price of a used super car is not what I want to spend to get a tumor removed. If that were the case, I may as well buy the super car and die a few years or months later and enjoy my final days. Shit, to make it even better, I might as well run that thing off a cliff at 150 miles per hour with a dip in and a fellow cancer stricken stripper sitting on my face.
But seriously physicians… why do you cost so much? My issue isn’t pressing. I have a sore throat. I have a toe nail fungus. My erection has lasted longer than four hours. You greedy bastards. Let’s say my plumbing failed. That’s a major issue! And yet, for some reason, my plumber is a cheaper expense than is getting sick. Maybe plumbers should work with doctors. They both could benefit. If a plumber sees a failing septic system, he could let it fail and then when everyone gets sick from having a cess pool in his or her back yard, the doctor could cut him a share for not fixing it! It’s brilliant! ….or illegal… either way, foresight is 20/20 at the moment.
