    I see that #1 and #2 are all over the world. I hate those too. My mom is good at giving guilt trips, but I’ve learned from her and can now use them against her!

    I like that list you come up with and I agree with #11 because it makes my blood boil every now and then to hear of arrogant, insensitive doctors who think they are gods and more supreme than their patients and nursing colleagues (I highly respect nurses a lot). Just because they have a medical doc title to their names, it does not give them the right to be monsters and I say if they want to be arrogant and have that god complex, I truly believe that they have stupidly violated the Hippocrates’ Oath. Secondly, if I were the head of the hospital who gets wind of this kind of doctor from the patients and nurses, I will not tolerate that nonsense and see to that he or she can kiss goodbye to his or her medical career, Dr. title, and licence to practice on the spot.

      that sounds great to me…on the other hand I do respect doctors out there who are truly humble. Usually the humble ones turn out to also be the best doctors and the most experienced – and they relate to patients with genuine empathy. Arrogance is something I really cannot tolerate. It’s terrible especially when your family member is critically ill and you have to deal with the cold hearted abruptness and just plain rude treatment. You just feel so helpless and at their mercy. Something needs to happen at a Societal and governmental level to make sure this doesn’t happen.

      I love the movie ‘Doctor’ with William Hurt, which showed how an arrogant doctor who becomes the patient learns about humility – it’s a case of a taste of his own medicine (pun intended). It was just brilliant and all doctors should watch that one, plus Patch Adams (Robin Williams shows us an example of a wonderful doctor). I also take exception with shows like Grey’s Anatomy where the surgeons treat patients like pieces of meat and talk about their inane stuff during operations. It freaks me out to think that happens in real life too.
