2 504 695 Näkymät

I've been a fan of The Onion for many years. For those of you unfamiliar, the onion is a satirical newspaper that focuses on current events. I have seen it trick people on Facebook before. Anyway, let's enjoy a nice laugh during a difficult time such as this.
If you have an idea of something you want me to cover in-depth, please let me know because I take your requests seriously. We will be back with more Medical Drama Review/Responding to comments Series in a couple of weeks so please submit more names of shows/questions you'd like for me to watch/answer. Love you all!

  • Sorry to say this Doctor Mike... but I saw you as a character in one of the gay books in wattpad and you're the bottom lead... I won't tell you the book though. If you tried to open up wattpad and search for fictions about you, they are all gay and 90% of them you're the bottom.

  • Omg I feel that last one though 🤣 I’ll eat a lot of carbs like pasta or a Hawaiian roll, feel guilty about not eating healthy, consider eating vegetables so that I can digest the carbs so I don’t gain weight, but then panic bc that’s still eating more food 🤣🤣🤣 PSA: please don’t eat one bread roll for an entire meal, I’m talking about a full dinner. Eat when you’re hungry!

  • 2:10 reason number 806 on why the current insurance system sucks. because it results in stupid negotiation concessions like this, where an arbitrary line is the difference between covered and not covered.

  • The fact that you spent a half hour on the phone with the insurance company for a patient shows what a caring Dr you are. Most would leave it up to the patient to deal with.

  • I enjoy Doctor Mike’s videos. He has a way of being informative and yet getting a good giggle on the way. I just wish that I had found his videos before I met the guy who said that he was a surgeon after my husband died. He took me for everything

  • Doctor Mike I know it might not be something usually on your channel but if you could talk about the difficulties in areas with limited doctors or insurances blocking you from finding an appropriate doctor for you. As a woman of color with a number medical conditions I have been dismissed multiple times. However what makes it worse is my insurance won’t cover those doctors that are appropriate for my care....

  • Hmm... I was at my university's medical center (about 15 years ago so maybe things have changed) and my doctor brought a student in. Like an undergrad student. I wasn't asked. She never touched me or did anything to me so maybe that's why, but she did observe. Then again, this same doctor told me I had anxiety when my ICP was so high I started going blind due to pseudotumor cerebri so...

  • Find the right SURGEON! 1st guy wasn't a sarcoma specialist and talked about all of these revolutionary sarcoma treatments....and never even did a biopsy!!!! Thankfully found a surgeon in Seattle who is not only a sarcoma surgeon, but so talented and great bedside manner. So great they refer to him as 'the dragon' ....and his young residents were always extremely good looking when they came into my hospital room after my surgeries obviously not necessary but such a great bonus! ;) hahaha!

  • So I was getting a condition looked at, and the examining doctor wasn't really sure what the cause was. Then brought in another doctor and she was like "wow." and the first goes "I know, right?" and there I am just standing there hoping they can just figure out a treatment because I've been waiting for a month for this appointment, suffering from my condition. I glance behind and see there's a med student there too.

  • Funny enough my father went on a diet, he is 6 foot 4 inches and weighed over 320 lbs, he eats a lot. He went on a pretty much zero carb diet, but eats like 6 massive salads a day, and/ or eggs and bacon ( almost 12 eggs and a pound of bacon ) I tried to tell him eating healthier doesn't work so well if you still have massive portions. He has lost almost 30 lbs so ill give him that...

  • I live in Germany, and I have NEVER once been asked beforehand if I was ok with the doctor bringing in a student. I normally don’t mind, I mean, They need to learn, of course. But when I had my wisdom tooth removed, I was conscious, the local anesthetic wasn’t doing well for me, I was in pain durin the whole 2 hours it took the doc to remove all 4 teeth and cut my lip band.... and the guy brings in a student while I’m lying there bleeding, crying, and starts EXPLAINING in detail what is going on and .... Yes, I still have flashbacks sometimes and I’ve gotten a lot more sensitive with anything related to my mouth. That guy was awful, never went there again :( my point is: yeah, please ask before bringing in a student. Sometimes it makes me as a patient feel like an object or “an interesting specimen”.

I would not have said yes normally so for my next 2 kids i specifically stated no students months ahead of time. I did allow one student or trainee in for the 2nd one only for the epidural placement phase

  • You say chest compressions but only if the person hasn't got a detectable pulse right? That's one of the benefits of an AED, it detects the rhythm and calculates whether the person is in need of a shock and whether they need CPR. Wouldn't it be bad to give someone chest compressions if their heart is okay?

  • When I was 33 I had a stroke, I was 135lbs and 5'8". I didn't smoke, I wasn't on birth control, I exercised every day!! I was admitted to a teaching hospital and the residents were adorable!! They asked to come in and observe, around 10 of them, trying sooo hard to hide their excitement! I have never been stared so hard at in my life!! It was a scary terrible day, but I got TPA within 2 hours of onset, so 17 years later I have mostly recovered. I have some neuropathy in my left side when I get tired. But I think of those residents sometimes and I giggle. Having the poker friends in to observe I'd what made me think about that story. Have a great day! My best friend is a DO, so I love DOs. Keep up the good work ❣️

The resident or whatever was like, “I have never seen something like this, can I call another resident in here to gawk over it to?” Sure why not. 🤷🏻‍♀️
