I just went to my doctor that I have been seeing at the medical clinic down the road. I went because I thought I might need antibiotics because I’m sick. We started talking about skepticism and long story short, he is a trained chiropractor, goes to a chiropractor, believes acupuncture works and cited a study saying prayer helps patients get better. He used the word allopathic. WTF? I asked him if I could interview him for a podcast. He didn’t say yes or no. He told me to look up muscle energy.
I looked up muscle energy.
OMG, I’m a skeptic and I’ve been going to an osteopathic doctor. I am so confused. Seriously, he is a really kind man who seems to genuinely care about his patients but shouldn’t I have been informed that the doctor treating me believes in prayer as treatment, holistic medicine and energy forces? I went to the doctor expecting to see an MD. I didn’t realize that I need to screen the doctor to find out what type of doctor I have. Maybe I should bring a questionnaire with me from now on. “Yes, while I am filling out my family history, I have a quick quiz for you as well, Doc. Please answer as truthfully as possible. Thanks.”
The bummer is, I really like the guy.
I have a fever. I’m gonna go lie down.
