See, that's what I mean: it's unfunny, juvenile, and more of a personal attack than anything else. Par for the course, doc.
Dave, don't get mad at me for your poor life choices. I'm not the one that checked "Chiropractor" instead of "TV/VCR repair".



oh, and if we tally up all of the personal attacks, you'd be in the lead, backcracker.

Grow up... For someone who feels that they are mentally superior to everyone, you certainly act like a child. Why don't you 2 get a room

Yeah, with TGM now resorting to making gay jokes, I think I'm done with this thread. Have fun.

Re: Some free medical advice...

I believe TGM is simply being a troll.

And based on other posts written by him, he certainly doesn't come off as being an exceptionally intelligent human being.

Which worries me, as he's apparently practicing medicine.

I hope and pray I never find myself at his office.

Re: Some free medical advice...

Be careful man, denying scripts can be dangerous...

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_odd_doctor_bite

CAPE CORAL, Fla. Authorities said a patient at a Cape Coral doctor's office bit part of the doctor's finger off after being denied a prescription. Police reported that a 45-year-old man went to see Dr. Paul Arnold Wednesday morning, and the man became upset about not receiving prescription medication.

Police said Arnold turned his back and the man attacked him. The patient reportedly bit Arnold several times, taking off the doctor's fingertip with one bite.

The fingertip was recovered at the scene and Arnold was taken to a nearby hospital.

Police have put out a warrant for the patient's arrest on a charge of aggravated battery.

Re: Some free medical advice...

You don't necessarily have to be intelligent to be a doctor. You just have to know what you're doing.

Which, obviously, TallGuyMe may be able to practice medicine but that doesn't necessarily mean he's good at it. By reading his posts in this thread seems like his education was lacking in some other areas as well.

Please tell me what you would do in this situation, and your reasons for saying yes or no.
Hopefully he tests for renal dysfunction before willy-nilly passing out a scrip.

So you would discrgard the black box warning that states that Toradol should only be given AFTER the patient has been on parenteral therapy and for no more than 5 days of combined therapy?
Lucky for you there are pharmacists like me out there who would refuse to fill your script. Oh, and it's ALEVE

residents are usually overworked and bitter about life, and also tend to have this larger-than-life attitude because they think they know everything. Inner city hospital would have a lot of drug addicts.

He should have realized all of you pharmacists are the same....sticklers for nit-picky things like BB warnings. Admittedly Pain Management can get complicated, but that was far from a "Gotcha!" question.

Anybody else but me suspect that any doctor that has the time to start a thread here and post juvenile troll-like statements is not who he says he is?

Re: Some free medical advice...

I'm just curious how this thread is still open when the OP admits he just started it to troll and he has personally attacked at least one member on several occasions. Odd.

a pharmacist? LOL. explains a lot.

The fact that you MIGHT be a pharmacist doesn't mean anything when it comes to using medicine in a practical setting.

Go to your local ED suffering from severe torticollis, and you'll likely get a shot of toradol and some IV valium right off the bat. Just because you hand out pills and read about them on your little computer screen, standing on your elevated platform in the back of a Walmart, doesn't make you a practitioner of medicine. It makes you a glorified vending machine. Do you even know what "parenteral" means? LOL.

Closing. Warning - Consider this disaster of a thread the next time you want to start some sort of rant/troll thread and take on the world with a belligerent attitude.
