I defend the right to competent, ethical and free health care for all Canadians for whatever ails you. And i will encourage physicians to be advocates for their patients and consider becoming researchers to find effective treatments for all. Sounds like we are moving in this direction as of yesterday.
How many times have you spent 6 hours in a doctor’s office ? 6 hours... And felt like he cared, and was trying to find solutions for you ? How many times did you get emails from your doctor, enquiring about how you are, or giving you advice ? How many times did your doctor personnally write to you to explain your results ? Or called you from a foreign country at his own expense because he had something important to say to you ? How many times did your doctor not make you pay anything because he knew you had no money coming in ? How many times did he call another clinic to negociate a lower price for their fees in your name ?
Tell me. If someone did this for you, and not just for you, for all his patients. Would you say he deserves to have his license removed because he wasn’t following admin rules to the letter ? Dr Hyde is getting old. He is 82. He is not perfect. But we don’t need perfect. We need someone who cares and who pours all his heart into what he does,
Who do we have left now ? Someone who is perfect in all admin aspects, knows absolutely nothing about ME and will see you 10 minutes in their office before suggesting CBT and GET ? Wow, we’re so lucky !
