Oh for a rational healthcare provider...

My health provider spent ten minutes of my appointment browbeating me about getting the covid vax. Are there any docs out there willing to listen to what we have to say, instead of quoting the Fauci playbook of fear and shaming?

    I am a family physician. Physicians are being pressured to push the vaccine from the health care organizations they work for, and threatened if they even suggest there might be some concerns about the vaccine. I have not gotten the vaccine and will not until there is more data. I am honest with patients about my thoughts on the vaccine and tell them what we know so far. I fear that soon we will be forced to get the vaccine as a condition of employment. Then I will quit.

      Didja read the latest. Five dozen doctors want the vaccines stopped for children and others. Seems there is a 99.997 percent chance under 20 don't need the vaccine. Strong immune systems.

    Yeah there are. My PCP. He and his staff haven't even worn masks. He advised me against the vaccine saying me having COVID for 6 days an an autoimmune disease was enough of that crap! He's a Kidney Specialist, Diagnostician and Pathologist.

      I'm looking for one now. With my health situation, it can be a real problem. The pacemaker/defibrillator is my main concern, but add several other conditions and my hunt will be hard and long. It will also be worth it. Is your kidney man anywhere near Cleveland?

        No darlin' he's in Houston, Texas. I have Graves Disease (Thyroid) and he says 'no vaccine'. I also just had my 5th stent put in my heart. 80% blockage. Was tested while in the hospital and they confirmed I'd had COVID in January.

          You and I have a few things in common. Part of my heart is dead, just 2 stents, stage 3 kidney disease and I'm fairly sure the hubby and I had covid for 4 miserable weeks last Feb. I refuse to be tested and inflate their totals when my heart finally quits :).

            Hey hang in there! All this stuff is a bunch of baloney. You know you had Covid. You don't need confirmation. I've had the flu 4 times (Asian, Hong Kong, and 2 whatevers) I don't take the flu vaccine. Why bother the flu won't kill you. But pneumonia will so take the pneumonia vax. I've lost 2 good friends to pneumonia. What's the problem with your heart? N

              Born with a ventral valve that was out of synch with the right, never knew it, docs called it a heart murmur when I was growing up. Over the years I couldn't understand why no matter how much I ran or worked out, my stamina never went up. Turns out it was a bundle blockage that caused the malfunction and over the course of things, my heart didn't get enough oxygen, my kidneys overworked themselves trying to clean my system. End result, heart and kidney damage. Could be worse. At least I can still take care of myself and my household.
