Default I found gross stuff about my Pdoc.

Thereís nothing I can do about it without getting myself caught but I found him on Facebook a few minutes ago. His Facebook is not private. In one post he talks about how he is a snob who drives a Mercedes and drinks wine. In another post itís a screenshot of him getting into an argument with some guy in a PM on Facebook and my pdoc is saying how rich he is. and then the strangest one is him using sexual language and saying things like ďIíll be home **** instead of Iíll be home sickĒ and then laughing and commenting about the typo I always thought the guy was a bit off. I mean, at least make your page private if your gonna post that way. No wonder my therapist talks badly about him. I know thereís nothing I can do without getting myself in trouble, but does anyone have any comments?

Well, that is not nice, sure. But the pdoc is just meant to prescribe medications and have knowledge about them, so you don't really need to do anything, I think.

My only comment would be that I wouldnít let it affect the relationship you have with him unless heís a **** to you. Is the standard of care good? Youíre not responsible for him or his actions so as long as youíre fine with the care youíre getting, Iíd leave this in the trash bin.

Whyíd you go looking, if I can ask?

Default Re: I found gross stuff about my Pdoc.

I mean it just seems like common sense. Yeah I also talk like that on my Facebook and talk badly about my job and my coworkers. But my Facebook is so private people canít even send me messages unless they are friends with me and canít send me friend requests unless they are friends of friends and all my posts are completely private from the outside So nothing will fall into the wrong hands. But yeah you guys are right.

You don't "need" to do anything.

Is he a good doctor for your medical needs? Some professionals are really odd ducks in their personal lives but they are fantastic in their profession. Heck, we've even tolerated some medical specialists who had horrible bedside manners because their work in their specialty was superb and hard to find equal for.

Default Re: I found gross stuff about my Pdoc.

PDoc's are just formaly trained people who prescribe drugs and claim a superior knowledge of brain things , many of them after 5 years out of school ,forget how to practice actual physical medicine .

The thing to remember, they are just people who went to school , outside of there office they have all the inate flaws,bias ,chips on their shoulders ,are impatient,hate traficc jams ,hate spam,robo calls etc etc ,like everyone else walking the face of the earth .

In their office they put on a public persona/ "face", to try and counsel people and be understanding ,but outside of work ,they let there hair down and just be people , I have seen some of my local guys behaving badly ,one guy pdoc locally a few years ago ,had a case of road rage in traffic when someone cut him off ,he pulled a gun and shot at the other driver , of course with a fancy lawyer and alot of excuses he got a year of probation instead of the more serious attempted murder , the wealthy have there own version of justice based on there bank account (although his has been shriking since then ,for some strange reason patients who saw him arrested and perp walked on the news,arent flocking to his practice?).

There are millions of marginal doctors out there ,there is only one student in every class who is first ,and we usually don't have access to records that tell us ,such and such doctor has a particular aptitude or attitude for the job , so when you do catch a glimpse of who a physician really is ,don't be shocked ! Not all people are nice and not all are evil ,we are lucky to find a good balance of each in any one individual.

Maybe one day PDoc's will be computers like Watson who will take down your syptoms ,compare them against millions of other people and spit out a diagnostic code for insurance and a cure for us ,until then we are stuck with ordinary humans as doctors .

There is an E.R doc I follow on you tube , he is a highly competent doctor, very skilled and hilarious , try searching Zdogg M.D. and watch some of his talks and the rewrites of hit song parady's( think medical version of "Weird" Al Yankovic) it will show you whats behind the white coat is a person just like you .

I mean he prescribes me Xanax when most doctors wonít even talk about prescribing it so for that reason alone I can deal with him being a douche. Do I trust him? Absolutely not. And for other reasons then just the Facebook stuff. Stuff thatís happened with me and with other people who see him.
