The Hidden Side of Medical Cancel Culture

by | May 7, 2021 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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.

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #7

How could the Delta variant be more contagious than the original Sars Covid, since variant comes from it? I would like to know what Dr. McCullough thinks about the possible connection between vaccine side effects and inadvertent intravenous injection of the vaccine? I work at a government lab, and we are being forced to take it or be fired by Nov 15th….. Help!! Please!

When it Comes to the Acts of Congress, those Emperors Have No Clothes

When it Comes to the Acts of Congress, those Emperors Have No Clothes

It’s much like the people in the story of The Emperor’s Clothes; the American people are either afraid of, or ignorant of, the facts, and are therefore unwilling to point out the obvious. I haven’t even found any evidence that this Permanent Apportionment Act of 1929 was even challenged in court, much less among the states. This lie has been going around for so long most Americans have been gaslighted into believing it’s true…

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

As a crisis develops, Democrats will use the propaganda resources of the mass media to promote their victimization and blame “White Privilege” as the reason for the supposed inefficiencies and injustices that keep them always subservient to their welfare status. CRT is another attack on a functioning America. Democrats offer false hope to the underclass…

Repeated US Intelligence Failures Spell Disaster

Repeated US Intelligence Failures Spell Disaster

At the moment, a ‘woke’ American military is not even capable of protecting the US borders let alone confronting a determined enemy. The USA is a naked target at the moment, and it will be innocent civilians who will pay the ultimate price for the gross betrayal by all its leaders to protect them from evil, starting with Joe Biden, the Traitor in Chief…

Let’s Identify and Quash the Apostles of Slavery and Injustice for All

Let’s Identify and Quash the Apostles of Slavery and Injustice for All

They supplant the virtuous Pledge of Allegiance that demands “liberty and justice for all.” Shall we helplessly sit back and allow these missionaries of evil to have their way? Some say yes. Others aren’t so sure. But a growing number of people are deciding they’ve had enough. For many months now, the plain truth has been evident: America is under attack!

A Woke Military Threatens US Readiness

A Woke Military Threatens US Readiness

Under woke military leadership, the US has fallen so far behind China and Russia that our best experts have no idea how the Chinese could accomplish this nuclear missile flight and strike. Milley and Austin and the Marxist Democrats (both the puppets such as Biden and the puppet masters such as Soros organizations) already have blood on their hands from Afghanistan.  

True Parent Patriots Act Against Racist, Anti-America Agenda

True Parent Patriots Act Against Racist, Anti-America Agenda

Parents have responsibly refused to stand idly by as arrogant academic ideologues teach their kids to judge one another by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character; malign their country as systemically and irredeemably evil rather than celebrate America’s virtues; and witness their tax money wasted on failed schools, failed curricula, and failed outcomes…

Breaking the Grip of Medical Tyranny

Breaking the Grip of Medical Tyranny

Patients and family members should demand “shared decision making” and enforce a patient bill of rights that ensures all parties agree on the treatment course. America has been rocked by the court cases that families have brought to bare getting court orders to force doctors and hospitals to administer proper care…
