The differences started 100 years ago
On the other hand, a reporter doesn't require more than a high school diploma to cast aspirations about things that s/he isn't remotely as educated about.
And The Medical Doctors Mentally Discombobulate:
Don’t Worry Doctors.
Medical Schools Are Not The Only Insane Asylums
That Grant Degrees.
Most Prisons Offer GED’s.
It’s Just That With Prisons
You Have A Penal System
Where Your Debt Is Already Paid.
I prefer a DO over the others any day!
i'm looking into finding a direct primary care practice in my area, found a practice with 2 Osteopathic docs and wanted to know if the Osteopathic board had an official vaccine stance.
Found this piece of propagandish BS. https://osteopathic.org/2020/12/23/aoa-statement-regarding-vaccine-misinformation-and-hoaxes/
I've always chosen osteopaths over MDs, I just felt they listened better. Subjective but important to me. I haven't seen a doc in years but was injured several times this past year and thinking i might need to see someone.
My husband’s primary care doctor is a D.O. I grew up going to D.O.’s. However, in our area of north Florida, they have become like M.D.’s. His doctor has taken 4 Covid shots. My husband has not taken any. He has advanced prostate cancer and no other health problems. She is pressing for him to get all the vaccines available, even some of those she can’t give because he’s on Medicare. Her personality has changed since he began seeing her a year ago. At his last visit, she looked like she had shingles on her forehead. Very sad.
When I went on the website That Dina Brazilai posted I was shocked! They are just like the the allopathic docs...and maybe even worse in that they SHOULD know better in my opinion.
The current system, and those in control of it, are responsible for people being denied appropriate treatment due to insurance coverage. I hear people say all the time, "I can't see that doctor because they don't take insurance". I tell them, it's not that they don't take insurance, insurance won't cover them. I predict this will change before long, as more and more people are stepping away from organized medicine
The last time I checked, I recall seeing a number that indicates only 16% of practicing MDs are members of the AMA. Any similar numbers with the AOA? Curius.
Thank-you Dr. Tenpenny...WONDERFUL explanation for a curiosity lasting years. My General Prac is a D.O. and though there was inquiry into the difference between her accreditation and that of an M.D. before choosing her as the Family's Physician, it still wasn't clear. It was gauche to take more time than necessary for an appointment to ask about such trivialities for two professional women as we both were. She's been a STUPENDOUS Physician for the whole family for almost 30 years and remains so also for the Grandchildren now.
Nice article which pretty much matches my study on the history of medicine in this country. My one amendment is that homeopathy does have very specific directions on how to apply the system as well as its philosophy. There are tomes writing on this from Samuel Hahnemann to the present. with ongoing research and writing. I would also note that the Flexner Report you referenced was an intentionally contrived "study" of medical schools designed to attack the homeopathic colleges and other eclectic schools. It was a tactic to destroy trust in those schools thereby causing loss of funding. It was an economic attack on the profession to cause its decline.
I would also note that today the Osteopathy is practiced in allopathic manner with many such offices not even knowing they work for an osteopath. That was my surprising finding a few years ago when I looked for a traditional energy working osteopath. Out of about a dozen such offices I called no one in the office knew what I was describing--they were all just standard allopathic practitioners.
This week MedPage ran an article that questioned the difference betw allopaths and osteopaths with the clear implication that DO's were not useful. I read it as a beginning attack on the profession the goal being its destruction. People really need to read between the lines.
Our dr/group told me they couldn’t go into the hospital to physically check on Stacy bc they aren’t internal medical drs. They always checked on him before. What does that mean exactly and is that a good excuse?
Then after he died, they told me they couldn’t help me look at his records because they couldn’t bill a deceased person.?😡😞
My last primary care doc was an Osteopath and he moved away. Sadly those around here now are vaccine and prescription Psychopaths.
Thank you for this brief but thorough and very clear explanation of the differences.
Dear Dr. Sherri,
"tenet" not 'tenant'
Thank you for this!!!
