…why I get so furious when I allow my mind to wander through the door of malfeasance.
Two Doctors in Miami had the right approach. Aizik Wolf and Beatriz Amendola. Both of them saw our ability to fight cancer as being good but still pretty barbaric. They both very actively spent money and time to stay on the forefront of their chosen areas as well as staying abreast on advances in other disciplines. Their theory was, do whatever it takes to keep the patient alive and as healthy as possible SO THAT they can benefit from the new REVOLUTIONARY things that come every 5-8 years.
The above is a REVOLUTIONARY thing if it pans out. Even if it only shows a third of its promise, that buys time for the next great unraveling.
Then their are self centered bastards who refuse to refer outside their own little petty fiefdom. Those who hide behind “standard of care” so bringing a successful lawsuit is tough, even when you KNOW they did not act in the best interest of the patient. When you KNOW they acted in the best interest of their AMG Mercedes payment.
Chemotherapy, one of the few drugs where the prescribing doctor profits on the drug prescribed, directly. Something lie 40% of the cost of chemo is prescribing doctor profit. HMMM.
I will stop here before my rant really gets going. But know that I know. Know that many other people are starting to know. Know that God and Satan know. One is shamed, the other is stoking coals for your soul.
