41. The doctor fired for having cancer speaks up

I was an intern) to get it worked up. But it was getting really, really bad. I was feeling really sick a lot and something had to be wrong so I really had to push to go to these appointments. For example, one time I went to get an MRI, but the MRI machine broke and then I had to go again the next day. And then when I told my team and my attending the MRI machine broke, they made some joke about my weight. And I was like, “No it’s actually cause there’s some helium tank in it that broke (...) and it was the telephone number to a lawyer, and I’m like, “This is all just so bizarre.” So then, I really didn’t want to get the legal system involved, but there’s got to be somebody that can help me. So then I started writing to the university president and he didn’t reply to me either. So I just got to this place where I decided to just fix everything on my own. So I made it a QI [Quality Improvement] project to create a system that I call PWP (which is physician wellness program). So that if anybody else has

42. Stanislaw Burzynski in NEWSWEEK: How long can his “unprecedented medical malfeasance” continue?

charges huge sums of money as "case management fees" to administer antineoplastons, how he downplays the toxicity of his magic antineoplastons, and how he has misinterpreted imaging studies. She even quotes Burzynski's lawyer's famous remark about how Burzynski's clinical trials were a "joke" designed to let him treat whomever he wanted to treat with antineoplastons. Wilner also asks a question that we all ask: Why does the FDA let these studies go on? The response is unsatisfying. First, as with most (...) Burzynski. It turns out that Cohen is like a lot of Burzynski patients about whom I've blogged. She appears to have been helped by conventional medicine but credits Burzynski, although it's not clear to me whether she is joking or not, as the passage is somewhat ambiguous: Sandra Cohen is a Burzynski success story—sort of. She went to him seeking antineoplastons, and when she didn’t qualify, she reluctantly started on chemotherapy and later agreed to surgery. Five years later, she is cancer-free. “Dr

FDA employees routinely flow in and out of pharmaceutical companies. The is built on the same phenomenon.

Regarding anti-science, the biggest problem is that while they think as themselves as whistleblowers, which could be true, the lack of scientific fundment makes their calls jokes easily debunked and when real science based critics over drugs are made they are not heard or disregarded. joshua said, March 22, 2011 at The EU Clinical Trial Register is now live Although the EMA are only slowly releasing the data onto the public site.

56. Why not make antibiotics over the counter?

? I don’t know, but here’s something I do. I’ve had patients storm out because I’ve said no, and I take the chance of a negative review right then and there when it happens. Not to mention a lawsuit, should some complication arise, and a lawyer takes on the case of “why weren’t antibiotics prescribed.” Should we basically cater to patient requests? We take a risk when we say no, in this increasingly customer-service based field, so why not just have them over-the-counter? We’ve all seen (...) the relevant cartoon. It’s posted on my personal Facebook page, sent by a good friend just the other day. A mug, held by the hand of a doctor, states, “Don’t confuse my medical degree with your Google search.” Sigh.
