Do You See Anything Unusual???
This is a picture of a recent MRI of a person that I care deeply for.... Last November she had a brain tumor removed and this MRI was taken ten (10) months later.... Do you see anything unusual???
What drives me insane is that when this person went to the neurosurgeon - He claimed to have reviewed the MRI... But when an educated and detailed question was asked - it was apparent he lied.... (he said everything looked normal... really? )He of course did a lot of back pedaling... My question - Is this: What happened to doctors taking the time to discuss results with patients? What happened to compassion.. truthfulness? Nowadays, HMO patients and many PPO patients have to wait weeks... months to see a specialist - only to find out that the specialist had not taken the time to review their case or worse forgets previous appointments and tries to start from scratch... I have lost count of the times this has happened..
With specialists not having time to really "see" a patient... I wonder what will happen when the health care reform actually takes over... The unknown is a scary thing... I pray all my fears are unfounded and something great will happen.. But thus far - I have not witnessed anything that the government runs getting better, have you?
