Doctors go to school for so long — and make so much money — you might assume they're somehow smarter or better than the average Joe.
But in reality, they're just people like the rest of us. And they can be just as unprofessional as the rest of us. A recent Reddit thread asked, "What's the most unprofessional thing a doctor has said to you?" The answers prove that it's the blind leading the blind out there.
A doctor told my husband, “I can’t make chicken soup out of chicken s***” in regards to a finger injury he had. He wanted to cut the whole tip off. We convinced him to just put a couple stitches in it. It’s actually quite amazing how well it healed. - NakedKittyAlucared
I have raynauds phenomenon, which is basically an overreaction to the cold where my blood vessels in my extremities constrict too much.
I brought it up during a routine checkup when I was 17, saying that my hands go deathly white and numb in the cold. She told me it’s all in my head. I was 17 and stupid and wasn’t picking up what she was putting down, so I said “no, I can see it happen when I’m cold.”
