Is Your Doctor Really A Doctor?

The NP's really don't work independently, and they also "practice" medicine without any input by doctors as to how that practice is working out. In other words, in some states which allow NP practice, a doctor who believes that they are practicing bad medicine can only complain to the board of nursing...which does not have the expertise to decide what good medicine is...and these boards typically dismiss complaints made by doctors without appeal. They don't know what they don't know, and there is a lot more of that universe out there than they understand. Arguing that a little bit of training makes them equivalent to doctors (and they do), and then simultaneously arguing a doctor's training doesn't matter, is nonsense.

Doctor's don't really know nutrition, and quite frankly that is a pretty gaping hole in the knowledge of any GP

It takes years to educate a physician. The process actually begins in college, with dedication to study and training the mind for the unbelievable challenges that lay ahead. Qualities that are integral to physicians need to be developed and perfected- restraint, self-sacrifice, delayed gratification. This is a weeding out process. Only the best and the brightest get through the screen.

Medical school presents even greater challenges. There are four years of constant study, two of which also contain short apprenticeships which require the students to learn about various medical disciplines, thereby allowing them to understand critical interconnections between these...
