The Hidden Side of Medical Cancel Culture

It’s quite obvious that when a physician loses his medical license for any reason, the personal consequences are devastating. But what most patients don’t realize is that they themselves have been victimized by cancel tactics for years. How? It starts with trusting “the new system” of medicine. In the golden years of medicine, physicians were paternalistic, and whatever they recommended was seldom questioned. Patients felt safe in assuming their doctor had only their best interest in mind—their health. And that was once a fairly safe assumption, despite the shortcomings of paternalism.

Things have changed. Now you, the patient, are a commodity. You’re very unlikely to be physically examined if you show up in the emergency department (ED), even with a potentially serious condition. The protocol has changed. No longer are diagnostic tests used only to confirm a condition suspected by a thorough history and physical exam. Imaging, lab tests, and other interventions are now the primary mode of patient evaluation. I’ve heard the story hundreds of times from my patients, “The doctor didn’t even examine me.” Even if your symptoms are consistent with a pre-pandemic, typical viral syndrome, expect to be told that your symptoms could be very serious, even life-threatening, and that tests must be ordered. Fever? It could be sepsis. Abdominal pain? Perhaps your bowel is obstructed. Headache? It might be a brain tumor. Theoretically, anything is possible. But have you noticed that health systems are using many more nurse practitioners and physician assistants these days?

It’s getting harder to see a physician. But does it matter? Medical schools seem to have drifted away from physical diagnosis, and when diagnostic skills are put aside, patients suffer. But hospital CEOs prosper—big time! The more diagnostic tests that can be ordered, the greater the profit for the hospital.

For example, one patient lamented that he had a $50,000 work up for “chest pain” that, by brief history, strongly suggested a simple panic attack rather than a cardiac event. He had no insurance and thus was responsible for this full cost. He was devastated. I helped him by asking if the ED physician performed a physical exam on him. No, he hadn’t. He didn’t even listen to his heart and lungs with a stethoscope! I advised him to request a copy of the chart notes. The response was a reduction of his bill to $20,000. No chart notes were sent to him. I advised that he request his chart notes again. This time the bill was reduced to $10,000, but he still did not receive chart notes. He again requested them, and in response, he was advised that his entire ED visit was written off. He was very pleased. But why did this happen? Because most patients don’t request chart notes. These would have revealed a completely documented physical exam that never happened, and the hospital knew it. You see, a physical exam takes time. A physical exam would possibly make all those diagnostic tests unnecessary. A physical exam would cost the hospital money. And for that reason, it often is not done. Or it is greatly curtailed.

Another example is a patient who had all the classic symptoms of a common cold. He was congested and was coughing profusely. The cough caused a headache, and copious mucus from a runny nose induced an episode of vomiting. He went to the ED for treatment. He recovered in a few days but had to cancel a vacation due to his copays from the ED evaluation that included a CT scan of his head, chest, and abdomen—all for a common cold. No medication was prescribed. This is corruption in medicine, but it is also becoming part of the new normal. We should not accept it.

I am not suggesting that every practitioner is out to scam patients. Perhaps most are honest and genuine. But anyone employed by organized medicine is pressured to comply with the status quo. And the status quo is to maximize financial returns for the hospital. The same goes for health insurance companies, pharmaceuticals, and every other entity in the medical field these days. The result is greater healthcare costs, unnecessary medical tests, frequent misdiagnoses, and increased harm from radiation exposure (think CT scans) and other interventions. 

When physicians lost control of medicine, patients paid a price. Despite all the focus on the veneer of “quality measures,” patient health rates a distant second compared to the bottom line. This is how the COVID-19 pandemic got so out of control.

Let’s be clear; you aren’t wearing a mask for your health; you are wearing it because you’ve been duped by the medical cancel culture. The same goes for the social distancing and the radical “vaccine” experimentation. The truth is, we have a ways to go before we can tally the full carnage from Coronamania. The worst may still be beyond the horizon. But one thing is certain. If we don’t start opening our eyes and ears to the truth based on pure science, physicians will no longer be needed. They will be replaced by the bogus protocol of pseudoscience as dictated by governmental and technocratic elites. And if that happens, health care will become an oxymoron. Ultimately, you, the patient, are responsible for your health. Don’t be naïve.

My Journey to Jesus – SGT Bush’s Mission to Demote Me

As usual, SGT Bush was giving me a hard time – ripping into every detail of my driving. He even once ordered me to go forward when doing so meant hitting the tank in front of me. I had to obey his order, or I could get in trouble, so I inched forward until my tank’s bridge gave a love tap to the bridge of the tank in front of me…

The JD Rucker Political Report – Our problems seem negligible when we see what Christians must face in nations like Nigeria. While we complain because some churches are embracing homosexuality in the name of “inclusiveness,” churches in Nigeria are being burned to the ground. Christians in Nigeria are beaten, kidnapped, raped, or even killed on the way to their churches…

Like the parents at school board meetings, for example, opposing Leftism indoctrination? Olsen announced the formation of a new FBI “domestic terrorism unit.” Doesn’t that make you feel warm and cozy knowing your FBI Domestic Terrorism Team is about to sweep the country, rounding up all dissenters they deem to threaten Biden’s autocratic rule? The rest will simply be censored…

Exposed! Government Bounties Pushing COVID Shots

Whistleblower Report – The Department of Energy was offering “incentives” per employee of $1000, which the employer could keep in their coffers or decide to partially share as a bonus to the employee. Companies with thousands of employees can rake in millions of extra dollars from the government, at no cost to them, for simply mandating the COVID shot for people to…

Our Interventions in COVID-mania Consistently Made Things Worse

Are we going to sweep it under the rug? Or are we going to have Nuremberg 2.0? If so, will we have a public hanging or maybe a truth and reconciliation commission? Emily Oster in the Atlantic has been booed out of the room, for she would like us to forget the whole thing. That does not seem reasonable, for a lot of damage was done, and we need to get to…

Pastor Cary Gordon Goes After the Woke Church

Pastor Cary Gordon Goes After the Woke Church

The JD Rucker Political Report – All too often, I get too deep into the political and cultural aspects of life in America. I don’t spend nearly enough time discussing the degradation of faith in America. Pastor Gordon has spent a good deal of time on the latter by exposing the challenges we’re facing as an evangelical movement. The “liberal” church continues to grow…

Synthetic Biology is Mass Casualty’s Newest Bedfellow

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now monitoring a new Covid-19 variant called XBB that is presently estimated to represent only about 3.1 percent of new infections in the U.S. So what’s the problem? The XBB variant, an Omicron subvariant mix, is supposedly “the most vaccine-resistant ever.” Perfect strategy. Let’s get the fear and…

Suppression of the Human Spirit and Q & A 47 on America Out Loud PULSE

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Peter McCullough and Malcolm Out Loud – Is heart damage something that can be managed with telemed, if many tests have already been done locally?

Cities Burned, Politicians Apologized & Prisons Began to Empty

Cities Burned, Politicians Apologized & Prisons Began to Empty

The very law that had worked so well became a political landmine for those who dared whisper their support, and the entire context of the bill was rewritten as some great hoax to repress the downtrodden. Forget how many thousands of inner-city lives had been saved or youth prevented from following a path of criminality; there was a political advantage to be made…

The Big Government Lie about Ivermectin Finally Revealed

The Big Government Lie about Ivermectin Finally Revealed

Because of a credible lawsuit, the federal government is lying in a most amazing way. It says it really did not say what it has been saying for more than two years. Federal lawyers recently argued in a Texas courtroom — and apparently with straight faces — that the government’s war on ivermectin during the COVID-19 pandemic was a figment of our collective imagination. What a load of BS…

Chinese Citizens’ Uprising Against Xi’s CCP has China on Edge

Thousands of Chinese citizens have taken to the streets of some of China’s largest cities, including Beijing, chanting “Liberate the city,” “If we die, let’s die together,” and even “Down with Xi Jinping!” and “Down with the Communist Party!” The question now is this: What will Xi do in the face of such open resistance to his policies? Will he repeat the tragedy of Tiananmen Square…
