Diagnosis, prognosis and cure in just three (3) short paragraphs !!!

Diagnosis, prognosis and cure in just three (3) short paragraphs !!!

If you doubt any part of what Dr. Jones says, go visit your local hospital  emergency room as an observer for an hour or so some Friday or Saturday  night.

See how many responsible people you can send this to !!!

Pictured below is a young physician by the name of Dr. Starner Jones.. His  short two-paragraph letter to the White House accurately puts the blame on a  "Culture Crisis" instead of a "Health Care Crisis".

It's worth a quick read:

Dear Mr. President:

During my shift in the Emergency Room last night, I  had the pleasure of evaluating a patient whose smile revealed an expensive  shiny gold tooth, whose body was adorned with a wide assortment of elaborate  and costly tattoos, who wore a very expensive brand of tennis shoes and who  chatted on a new cellular telephone equipped with a popular R&B ring  tone. While glancing over her patient chart, I happened to notice that her  payer status was listed as "Medicaid"! During my examination of  her, the patient informed me that she smokes more than one costly pack of  cigarettes every day and somehow still has money to buy pretzels and beer.

And, you and our Congress expect me to pay for this woman's health care? I  contend that our nation's "health care crisis" is not the result of  a shortage of quality hospitals, doctors or nurses. Rather, it is the result  of a "crisis of culture", a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable  to spend money on luxuries and vices while refusing to  take care of one's self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance. It is a  culture based on the irresponsible credo that "I can do whatever I want  to because someone else will always take care of me."

Once you fix this "culture crisis" that rewards irresponsibility  and dependency, you'll be amazed at how quickly our nation's health care  difficulties will disappear.

Respectfully,
STARNER JONES, MD

If you agree...pass it on. YES YES YES

  1. this doctor should be more concern about what the patient came to him for , to be treated , rather than what the patient is wearing and carrying with her or what shoes he /she is wearing , he took and oath to heal patients not to criticize what the patient is wearing ... have a heart my dear doctor wether she smokes cigarettes drink a beer , or eat pretzel is none or your business everyone has to learn ther lessons some grow old and never do ... if they live on medicaid or medicare or welfare is not of your business ,your business is to treat patients , if you are unhappy then dont do it no one is making you or forcing you to do something you are not happy with , stop complaning and be more loving ....you dont care for that patient the only thing you care about is that medicaid is paying and you feel is your money going towards her care ..... loving is not complaning but telling the patient what she is doing wrong .....

    1. marianinia,

      You are the very reason the person who wrote the article felt compelled to do so.

      .....The jist of it was that there should not be any reasoning, at any level, that supports peoples' actions that are irresponsible.

      ....The person mentioned is illustrating just how insane the system we have is.

      ...If this person wants to be irresponsible, it should be at her own cost and not the cost of the public at large!

      I'M ALL ABOUT FREEDOM, ...FOR EVERYBODY! .....And the woman in the emergency room illustrates the very situation that makes me and you a slave to her irresponsibility!

  4. well if the human labor force was not being replaced by fully automaed factorys and assemblie lines, that do everything a human being used to do to earn a paycheck, i would say open your eyes, and feel blessed that you have a nice paying job and paycheck most would say is too much.

    just because you live in a gated community and a 5,000 sqaure feet home, don't think the rest of us is worthless useless eaters human trash, open your eyes and see the growing percentage of middle class now living just more and more one day at a time barley, while you get a big paycheck because you were blessed being born into a nice life. open your eyes you could be next and replaced with a robot automation machine more and more every day.

  5. It's all about education - I'm tired of our tax money, that we work for, going to support people who are too damn lazy to work.

    Thanks to Dr. Jones for making the country aware of the free-loaders. There's too many below average people in our society today and most of them vote.................

  6. People will not quit doing harm to themselves until they BELIEVE it is killing them. Doctors are too kind to most people. They should just refuse to take care of anyone who after being given instructions on what they need to do to get well and don't follow the doctors orders..................and don't get off of the things that are killing them. Just tell them like it is. This is killing you and I won't treat you. Thank you Dr.
