Suburban Doc over at Suburban Emergency has written an excellent response to a commenter on his site. Like many of us who work in the ED, Suburban Doc was expressing his (her?) discontent with ED overuse. A commenter on his blog became irate and chewed him out a little, stating that she shouldn’t have to navigate the maze of modern medicine when she can go to the ER for anything at all and get an answer.
Suburban Doc took aim and fired a full barrage back. It’s sort of like watching a tank return fire on a peashooter. Go on over and take a read; it’s well worth your time to do so.
