The Business of Medicine

pet dogDoes ‘your’ doctor care? Of course he doesn’t! It’s simply a business relationship and his ‘care’ is quantified by money. Don’t look to a doctor for understanding

Got more money? Then you will get more ‘care’, though not necessarily care. You won’t get it from the nurses either. Being sick, old, or both is a lonely situation. Your paid ‘care’ givers rarely show genuine care in our dollar society. They are not allowed to really. Our affections are reduced down by the business community to a paycheck at best.

If you want genuine care you’d do better to turn to a dog or cat rather than to an American doctor or nurse. Heck, American business even tried to monetarily quantify that real care as a brief trip to a Petco or Petmart will have you lectured about being ‘responsible’ to their ‘companions’ whose supplies they want to sell to you. But the dogs and cats don’t buy it unlike the nurses and doctors who do. They’re not into money and thus can actually deliver the real McCoy… CARE. The doctors and nurses will mainly deliver a business service to you, and badly at that.
