Bioethics Discussion Blog: Why People "Hate Doctors"

Maurice Bernstein of Bioethics Discussion Blog has written an interesting post about search engine queries and hate:

"A visitor came today to my blog from Google with the search words “I hate doctors”. So I went back to Google today and entered the words "I hate..." and finished the expression with "doctors" and found there were 18,300 sites using those words. Then I replaced "doctors" with "nurses" and then a whole bunch of other jobs and below is the results I obtained:

Doctors 18,300
Nurses 659
Lawyers 10,100
Politicians 994

Read the 84 comments (and counting) on Dr. Bernstein's previous post to see why people may feel that way.

  1. Wanna know why?

    You don't know how frustrating it is when they are doing their job only because it's ajob. You feel controlled and not always are all doctors are capable in doing what they think they can. There are some who came out of school with flying colours and marks.. and there are some who .... came out of school ..with the paper. But what I don't understand is why they have all this control over my life when last time I checked, my life seems to be mine.

    Here in Toronto, doctors seems to be better and best discribed as ... "Higher All Knowing/Controlling Beings" (doesn't matter what religion). For our Toronto Health Care system to run only smoothly for Toronto Doctors .. is because they basically set the rules for all the other Torontonians.

    Here's my rant when I was typing with anger. ...

    I'm Diabetic and want another opinion. I couldn't get it because by signing my life away and branding my "Higher Being" to be just the only BEING that can manage my LIFE! I couldn't go to another doctor without feeling like I'm going through some affair. I just want to better my life with more guidence and of course, as intellegent as I am with out a PHD or ABCDEFGs... up my other hole, second opinions are greatly appreciated.

    Unfortunately, most doctors dislikes patients that did not sign their life to them. If I ever need an advice. I am always stuck with one BEING's opinion and because that's the only ONE BEING that can see me.... I can only see the specialist that only this BEING knows and THINK that is good for me. It feels as if doctors are like mothers because they went to school for being a mother? Why do they have this kind of control over my life? It's not by choice I am diabetic, and it's not fun being one either. Please stop being "Your 10 mins are up, I'll see you in 2 weeks dicks" and start useing their PHDs and ABCDEFGs! .....

    So what if I signed my life to this ONE doctor! Why can't other doctors be more professional and just try to heal me!? It's better off to "Internet" myself back to health! "Thanks Google for all your hard work! Thanks Heathline for providing me such great care! "Stupid Stupid Canadian I Don't Care About Your Health but I LOVE your MONEY Health System!!!

    Yeah it's free, but we paid tax!!!
    Yeah it's free, but we work more day and night just to pay you MORE TAX!
    Yeah it's free, but you know what.. I rather pay for my Health, get my tax portion back for not truely utilizing every penny of it and since I'm paying, I get to choose who I want to heal me and start feeling like a HIGHER BEING MYSELF!

    I don't hate doctors, but I just absolutely LOATH their attitude towards their patients/money/ money ...... money... and the system.
