This isn't necessarily meant to apply to all physicians across all specialties, particularly the trauma/ER docs, whom I have respect for. However, most doctors who treat musculoskeletal injuries, i.e. GPs, orthopedists, "sports medicine" doctors, podiatrists, physiatrists, etc. make me absolutely sick. I just don't understand how a group of professionals who spend so much time in school and recieve so much respect can be so MORBIDLY FUCKING INCOMPETANT.
I've been severely injured for seventeen months and I'm convinced that my recovery time has been at least doubled as a direct result of following the advice of my doctors (and I've seen about 15 of them). Yes I realize that they're only human and they can't fix everything but I KNOW that I am significantly worse now than I was before I sought the advice of doctors. I HATE THEM!
