A reader asks Doctor D:
“What should I do when my doctor’s answers are vague and useless?”
This patient was frustrated that every time she asked her doctor what to expect she got useless answers like “Maybe” or “That’s a great question!” or “I wish I knew” or other replies so vague as to offer no real answer at all.So D the ever-helpful wrote her back:
Great Question! I wish I knew. Maybe that’s just how doctors are?
"Admit it, bullshit answers feel so much better coming from a professional like me!"
You know, it's the prerogative to be a heartless bastard that really makes all those years of medical school worth it!
