Sometimes I think that doctors are criminals.
They are all too willing to prescribe name brand medicine rather than the generic ones.
They will gladly take your money for a very quick checkup appointment that yields no answers. They also have no problem turning you away when their treatments have been ineffective. Overall, it seems like doctors have a handle on the medical community that we cannot overcome or win. That’s why I pay more attention to what the nurses say. The last time I was at my allergy specialist I was especially blown away by the information that I received from the attending nurse. First of all, I have been visiting this allergy specialist for over five years but I haven’t seen a remarkable Improvement in my respiratory symptoms. In fact, after he put me on an over-the-counter allergy medication nothing ever improves. I continue going back to his office because my respiratory ailments have only gotten worse. This time, I was sure that he would have some kind of newfangled idea to tackle my indoor allergies. However, it was the nurse who had all the good information. After the doctor walked out of the room she calmly turned to me and told me to check out my central heating and cooling system. When I got home I called my local HVAC repair dealership and arranged a professional heating & cooling service appointment. After the professional HVAC technician cleaned and inspected the entire central HVAC most of my allergy symptoms mysteriously disappeared. It seems like this nurse is on to the allergy specialist snake oil, too.
