It takes how many years to be a doc.? Glad to see all those years of great education paid off.

It's not the doctor's fault that people choose the hospital ER to be a pain in the butt in. (Screaming for an hour? sick? etc.) People need to take care of themselves and leave the medical profession alone when they don't want to participate. I see folks who won't do what the doctor advises, and keep showing up in the office saying "order more tests, there has to be something realy wrong..." yet they won't change thier diet or exercise or take thier medicine. They'll scream for an hour.
