Am I wrong?

I had to go see a doctor (MD) today. I ended up sitting accross the only one available (public holiday), at the local Medicross. I frequently use this clinic but had never seen this individual before. As usual my curiousity got the better of me as he was scribbling on his notepad, going out to fetch some papers, etc.

Homeopathy this..... Homeopathy that..... National council of Homeopathic some more ..... I almost felt a cold chill run through me as the reality was dawning.... and I finally spotted (to my relief) the solitary medical degree on the wall: "Bachelor of Science". Phew. But, hold on, is this guy now a homeopath or a (really real) MD? And if he's so into homeopathy as to plaster his whole wall with certificates and accreditations.....

Why is he working for Medicross?

I did a quick mental once-over of the script to make sure it was legit medicine. It was (but was it the correct stuff, I wouldn't know), so I just took it and left. Next time I'm phoning to check who'se on duty before visiting on a public holiday again.

I now am more concerned about our healthcare system than ever.

Don't Medicross have some kind of Administrator to write to? Shit, if they are allowing those friggen Homeo quacks to practice there, I will DEFINITELY say something to someone. And this guy had the gall to put certificates on the wall saying he was a homeopath? You are not wrong bro - I'm shocked to the core.

Homeopathy is covered by medical aid. So its not strange to see them at a Medicross. Hell, I'm in HR and we accept "doctor's" letters from traditional healers. I can really rant and rave about this lot, but I doubt its going to make an iota of a difference. We're in deep dwang, the medical crisis is only starting, its going to get a LOT worse...

Keep in mind that homeopathy is a 6/7 year degreed course at uni, similar to a medical degree, certificates and degrees on the wall need to be scrutinised carefully before you trust your life and limb.

these bastards are every where. And they are sneaking up on us!

I injured my shoulder a while ago, and the pharmacy recommended this trauma gel called "Traumeel". Being all trusting of the science based pharmacist's career, i bought it. About two days later, i realised that they had given me a homeopathic remedy. I was pissed as hell, but it was too late. (wtf!!)
