It the last issue of Reader’s Digest two dozen of doctors revealed “41 Secrets Your Doctor Would Never Share“.

I recognized myself in quite a few of these thoughts shared by the colleagues. Here are some of their “confessions”:

  • So let me get this straight: You want a referral to three specialists, an MRI, the medication you saw on TV, and an extra hour for this visit. Gotcha. Do you want fries with that?
    –Douglas Farrago, MD
  • It really bugs me when people come to the ER for fairly trivial things that could be dealt with at home.
    –ER physician, Colorado Springs, Colorado
  • Sometimes it’s easier for a doctor to write a prescription for a medicine than to explain why the patient doesn’t need it.
    –Cardiologist, Bangor, Maine

    –Heart surgeon, New York City
