The medical profession in the United States must undergo a complete re-haul. Medical options are diminishing due to confusion coming from different directions. It should have never turned into a political issue. It should have never been allocated to the IRS for enforcement. Outright, it is a violation of our human rights.
It is a well-known fact that there are medical facilities emerging around the world that specialize in diagnosing, treatment and prescribing medication for short-term and long-term patients. And, these centers do it better than anyone else.
Unfortunately, the information is not passed on to other medical facilities. This causes a loss of life due to miscommunication, archaic processes, and arrogance.
It is not uncommon for a patient to spend the bulk of the time in the waiting room or waiting on the doctor to stop staring at a computer. A few years ago, a doctor from the countryside would take a good look at the patient, talk to the patient, and then write notes before the nurse takes over.
Medical Options and Decisions Forthcoming
There are emerging technologies that could dramatically improve systems, processes, and procedures for the entire world to enjoy. Through better coordination, as a global village, we could extend our longevity.
Regrettably, doctors and nurses are listening too closely to the pharmaceutical industry. They delegated too much authority to astute MBA business managers managing their facilities to adequately, and efficiently, direct their professional services. What do optimization practices accomplish in the medical profession accomplish?
The following excerpts are not meant to shame or embarrass the medical profession; and therefore, names will not be revealed. This article is written in good faith by patients, not professionals. Baja Medical Directory was started not from professionals, but stories collected from a variety of patients representing all ages.
A few years ago, a friend’s wife died of cancer. His wife should have taken better care of herself. At an early age, she did not get regular mental or physical examinations. When her cancer was discovered, it was too late. Many forms of cancer spread awfully fast. Her medical service provider should have been held accountable for not enforcing a strict medical regimen. An excellent medical program would have caught it. Had she had a “battle-tested” nurse contact her to convince her to get an annual checkup, her cancer would have been discovered in time and possibly eradicated. Would this be a profitable relationship for a medical service provider to consider?
A family doctor, a clinic or a hospital where the patient visits regularly should ensure well-being. This should include a mental checkup. A doctor and nurse should include mental and psychological testing in an environment conducive to detecting problems and irregularities. At the bare minimum, make it perfectly clear to each patient that they serve as an outlet and source of contact for help. Be the silent partner.
Nowadays, for some damn reason, younger generations attempt suicide. Many of them are successful. Families and those within the circle, sadly, suffer emotional trauma. Their lives are changed forever. Sometimes, dwelling in a caustic society, people get desperate.
About ten years ago, a friend’s father was diagnosed with cancer. The family doctor really does care about you, but he or she is not a specialist. The family doctor referred them to a very popular hospital in southern California. Caution! The popular hospital heavily promotes its cancer treatment program. But when the head of the department presented options, none of them was met with approval. In fact, the entire family got scared. The odds for success were against them. For the first time in their lives, the family (wife and siblings) had to face serious repercussions if they approved the recommended cancer procedure, horrendous treatment, and post-care.
By extreme luck, the father decided to look elsewhere for options. He found a cancer specialist, a sole practitioner, about twenty miles away from the very popular hospital. The sole practitioner offered better options with much better odds of prolonged survival in his twilight years!
The point is that if the patients at the very popular hospital knew about the cancer specialist, it’s a good bet that most of them would have taken his options instead of stumbling around with a bag and drooping from weakness and exhaustion after the effects of strong medicine with a life expectancy of only a couple years.
The father is alive and well, ten years later.
Open Your Eyes. Clean out your Ears. Feel the Beats from your Heart
Get more than three opinions. We got the Internet, a powerful weapon. Look for testimonials. Read the fine print (yeppers), and get your information from a variety of sources. Visit the facility and look around.
For example, another friend finally found a doctor who was happy to tell him to buy vitamins available at the local store. He purchased low-cost over-the-counter supplements (potassium citrate and black cherry) as an alternative treatment to medication that, if taken for years, deteriorates the body. Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of anti-aging principles?
Interestingly, asking the knowledgeable pharmacist for the best vitamin or aspirin (or cough syrup) that works best during flu season is free, and fast.
While investigating, consider the emerging medical facilities emerging around the world that specialize in new medicine. For consideration, carefully evaluate all your medical options with family, friends and a variety of professionals with different backgrounds.
Can we toast to glorious life with a delightful glass of wine together? To your health!
