The Impatient Patient ---David Berner

thetyee.ca The Impatient Patient



Well- NHS Blog Doc thought this could be me- which is such a nice compliment, as not only did he look me up, but he also thought I could write something this well. I only wish. This is an EXCELLENT article that shows clearly that patients should stand up for themselves, be informed and advocate for those who cannot do it for themselves. While it is laugh out loud funny in some places, it is also sobering in its message- medicine is fallible, doctors can be idiots and sometimes patients have a wisdom that is beyond that of med school training. They inhabit their bodies, and even though their experinces are classed as subjective, because they cannot be measured, they are valid.
