I wish more doctors took the subjects discussed here today more seriously. They are far more common and disabling than they are treated. It is a negative situation for victims and a sorry reputation for doctors. The VICTIMS of the malpractice and ignorance leave damaged people more damaged than necessary. A sad commentary on our culture over all.
