second opinion

Second doctor's opinion? Check. Third opinion, fourth, fifth? Check, check, check. They're all wrong
A cautionary tale out of Arizona: A physician sought out a dermatologist for a major-turbo-itching problem; fancy treatment; got worse; another dermatologist; fancy treatment; got worse; immunologist; got worse; infectious disease person; got worse. Try one more dermatologist, who was Dr. Howard Luber, who instantly, correctly diagnosed the problem (and in fact, his nurse instantly, correctly diagnosed it before he did): scabies, a Dermatology-101 condition. Chuck's not a doctor, but he's sure you can learn something from this. Washington Post

When interviewing a new doctor before letting them "practice" on me I try to work in 2 quick jokes. If both don't get a chuckle I pretty well know I'm dealing with the wrong person.

Q: What do you call the person who graduated last in his\her class from medical school?
A: Doctor

Q: What's the difference between God and a doctor?
A: God doesn't think (s)he's a doctor.
