My God what boredom I would say that 75% of these patients need psychologists/life coaches and physical trainers. The only people that really needed to be seen were: a) elderly b) diabetic c) needed antibiotics which was signaled by a clear pain symptom The Doc I shadowed was the nicest guy in the world, and he'd been doing this for like 22 years, since he was 28. I couldn't believe his judgement reservation skills. I was there for ten minutes and I wanted to bring in Tony Robbins to slap these people and tell them to go workout and do something with there life. "Why does your back hurt!? Why are you depressed? Because you don't do anything, and you're fat!" Don't get me wrong. I wanted to help these people, but a Family Medicine Physician was not what they needed. Maybe I would have been referring more of them out or something. I mean he was doing things things like, "Are you still having depression? Maybe we should put you back on Paxil hun?" And I was thinking, "really? Just like that? 'depression?' This lady needs to talk to someone." Anyone else get a similar impression? Should I still be a doctor?
