dilbert sunday october 25 2015

for copyright reasons i couldnt post the strip on this blog

Image result for dilbert
now i read dilbert everyday
its my comic of choice
theres this edge that i like
i guess i think like this sometimes

ive thought a lot about medicine since ive retired
had to go to the other side
the patients side
i dont like that side of medicine
ive learned to accept it

if youve been to a doctor lately
many of them have electronic medical records
they look at the screen
read the screen
type in something
ask you questions
dont hardly ever look you in the eyes
look at you
watch your mannerism your movements your face
when you talk
they are missing a lot of whats the art of medicine
knowing your patients
reading them
yes providers
you have to look at us when you talk
touch us some maybe pat our shoulders
rub the kids head
heck i use to take my finger and put it on the kids
shirt and say
whats that
when they looked down
i would touch the tip of their nose
gotcha i would say
they loved it
i enjoyed it
a bond was being built between me and the kiddo
i rubbed his or her hair
see ya next time

is all that going to go away
with the dilberting of medicine

im afraid is is
im afraid it already has

not sure how it can be fixed
