Doctor Wrong

A physician can possibly maim. Being ill-informed, one that I blame Cares not for real knowledge Despite years of college. “Erroneous” should be his last name. Jan. 11, 2019 for Joseph May's 'Limerick II' Contest Info

Cute one. Reads like a good contender to me. There are some bad doctors out there and some good ones. How can we know the difference? Thanks for dropping by. Sara

Boy can I relate to this poem Andrea! Knowing this comes with age and experience. I will no longer be a guinea pig for my doctor to experiment with new drugs. We have learned to research for ourselves and share information with each other and online. What a blessing that is! A wonderful poem Andrea! Thank you! xxoo : )

ooh ! Way to give 'em heck Andrea ! I imagine everyone has a name with an MD behind it that they think of when reading your poem. However I have met a few really good ones. Nice job on the Limerick. I love'em.

Hi Andrea, love the content of the limerick, sorry to read that you have had a few doctor wrongs. I am very rarely at a doctor, the few times I am I get the usual from them, "We can't do anything for that, so it is grit the teeth and fight the pain. It is so wrong you had to look up what was wrong by yourself. Definitely isn't right. A strong limerick. I wish you well in the contest Andrea. I am always amazed at the excellent limericks on the soup. Have a wonderful Sunday. Hugs....Mike. XX

I haven't adequate words for how precisely wonderful it was to read this; all your emotion threw a well-deserved punch that I could feel, live vicariously thru for my own doctor' therapy, and poetically applaud. Love it ... CayCay (up in the wee hours)

all md doctorates should be given psychological tests to see if they are beyond a given technical stage

Love your comment. I have had it with them all. Seven of them could not diagnose me. I had to find it researching online by myself.

Hello Andrea, yes he is doctor wrong. Have a nice evening my friend.

not one, but many, as you , my sweet sister, know so well yourself (from the way you were misdiagnosed for years by your doctors)

yeah, MY doctor, but no longer! It's very difficult to find one that truly understands all about drugs and their interactions on people

There is more than one "Doctor Wrong" out there, Andrea, and sometimes we don't know how ill-informed they are until damage has been done. A superb limerick for Joseph's contest. Winning wishes headed your way! Hugs, Carolyn

Very sad and true. I have been miss diagnosed more than once. Would like to see more limericks from you. Maybe one day you will read your poetry in a NYC venue! Peace & Love Matthew Anish
