Tbf, patients should work with the doctor and advocate for themselves. I’ve had 2 occasions where I brought up new medical research and the doctor was open minded enough to look into it. Medical knowledge changes quicker than ever, and sometimes research from say Russia won’t get to US doctors that quickly. And there are lots of fields of medicine and your GP won’t be an expert and up to date on most of it. Even specialists are guilty of it sometimes.
Don’t be a retard and go by webMD and ignore what’s the doctor says, but definitely do some research so you can be your own advocate and work with the doctor to find the right treatment for you. Doctors don’t know everything.
But then, how would I know who is a Forumosa Regular?
