Doctor Challenges Comedian: Real Or Fake Disease?

805 751 Näkymät

I invited comedian, advocate, and most importantly my friend Pamela Rae Schuller over for a little game. I quizzed her on which diseases were real and which were fake, and if she could get it right then I’d donate $100 to the charity of her choice, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Here’s the catch: literally every disease I quizzed her on is fake, having all come from movies and TV shows. Pam was squirming back and forth trying to figure out if diseases from Pokemon, Contagion, Spongebob Squarepants, Batman, The Simpsons, and countless other programs were real. I followed it up with some real things in medicine that sound fake but aren’t.

  • Have you ever seen Saving Hope. They are wrong on so many levels. The doctors sit on the patients bed the side rails are never up they told a patient to walk in the hallway by herself on her first day post op. They did chest compressions in a small child with both hands. One of the residents was documenting with red ink. They never open the air way properly to ambu patients. And the beds are always in the high position. But one thing that has not changed the doctors still don't sanitize their hands nor their stethoscopes between patients.

  • 0:24 If that's a real charity, then OK, but that name makes it seem bogus. Bit difficult for Pam -- you could take the name of a real disease named after someone, and substitute a different surname...

  • Fun fact: when I was pregnant with my daughter I developed Geographic Tongue. I talked to my Dr and mentioned I did my research and I was thinking it was this. she informed me its not a real thing, made me worry A TON and said I need to get a tongue swab cause it could be an infection etc. After the visit nothing was ever done, in fact she never mentioned tests again. It has been almost 2 years since my daughter was born, the lesions come and go. This is the ONLY confirmation I'm not crazy lol thank you Dr. Mike!

  • I actually have a Geographic Tongue! My mom works at a dental clinic and one of the dentists was the one who diagnosed me! The patterns changed often and sometimes the tongue was completely fine for a few days before the patterns returned again. I never had it as a kid, and the first time I saw the change on my tongue was around 2014-2015. It's sometimes very painful, like when I eat spicy or salty food, or drink warm drinks. Just imagine burning your tongue on very hot coffee, and keep drinking it even though it burns. That's how it feels eating spicy food..
