Doctors, hospitals and plumbers – can’t trust ‘em


Sometimes you get sick and you go to the hospital or the doctor, then you get sicker.

I spent a fortune on an MRI and was referred to a doctor in Tuscaloosa.  I couldn’t get the results of the MRI unless I paid almost double what I’d already spent. 

What?  I already paid for it. No wonder our health care is in shambles. 

I’m furious.  Doctors and hospitals are worse than plumbers. And you can’t find a good plumber either. If you find one, don’t trust him.
