Do You Trust Your Doctor Anymore?

Do you trust your doctor anymore? Honestly?

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times.

I don’t mean Dr. Anthony Fauci. How can anybody trust him, with all the prevarications, constant shifts in policy and deceptions, not to mention hiding American taxpayer support for gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and other aspects of the doctor’s dark past revealed in great detail in Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s book?

I’m talking about your own personal doctor, the man or woman who has been your friend and trusted counselor for years, maybe decades. How do you feel about that person? Has it changed?

What many are perceiving as a growing mistrust of physicians is one, among many, of the tragic fallouts of the pandemic.

How that happened isn’t that difficult to trace.

But first, I must briefly interrupt this column to say something related that has now reached a critical level of importance:

Get off Twitter if you are still on it.

That the social media company banned Dr. Robert S. Malone, one of the key developers of the mRNA “vaccines” and a leading figure in the discussion of the pandemic, is an example of censorship straight out of the Goebbels playbook, with ramifications back to the treatment of Galileo.

No one who considers him or herself a supporter of the First Amendment should countenance this “cancellation” or participate in this for one second. Get off Twitter already. No excuses.

Now, back to the subject at hand. I wasn’t talking about all doctors, obviously.

Many are brave, and not just the well-known signers of the Great Barrington Declaration and other eminent physicians interviewed here at The Epoch Times, but quite a few local doctors as well, including some who practice something known as “functional medicine.”

But the great masses of doctors have melted under the pressure of the government, following the party line on the pandemic.

If you mention hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin or some other therapeutic or even, in some cases, the apparent superiority of natural immunity, they either don’t hear you or respond condescendingly, then point to the necessity of the vaccine.

At that moment, they are thinking of themselves, of their families, their incomes, their medical licenses, their relationship to their hospital or clinic, medical systems entirely dependent on cooperation, financially and legally, with the ever-changing diktats of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration.

Understandable, perhaps, but these doctors are, bluntly, acting cowardly and therefore earning our distrust. They probably know this and feel trapped, but that doesn’t excuse their behavior.

Their occupation has been elevated almost beyond all others. They should act accordingly.

In particular, they should remember the obvious, what they were first taught: Hippocrates’s “First, do no harm.” There’s a direct line from the ancient Greek to the vaccines. We don’t know the extent to which they “do no harm,” but it’s looking worse.

Malone—that poor, banned fellow—argued that only those over 65 should consider it, because only at that advanced age do the benefits outweigh the risks.

And yet our government is recommending the vaccination of five-year-olds. Is your doctor going along with this? It’s hard to justify considering the absolutely minimal COVID-19 risk to children.

No one knows what the future will bring from this, but auguries are not good. We already know that masking these same children is causing all sorts of developmental deficits.

They will haunt our society for years to come.

Meanwhile, many have seen the present from the inside and don’t want to talk. Among those who are talking are, interestingly, those lower down the medical totem pole than doctors—nurses. If you haven’t already, you can find extraordinary video testimonials on what is happening inside our hospitals on Gateway Pundit. It’s not fun, but I urge you to do so.

Sorry to be so depressing. Pointing out our alienation from our doctors—my father was one—is something I never dreamed I would be doing.

But there is a good side. Since government intervention in our health care has been so extreme for the past two years, we have, in essence, been living under a form of socialized medicine. (We have for a long time actually, but it has been taken to a new level.) We now have had a chance to evaluate this system, as they say, up close and personal.

I am willing to guess that most of us paying attention have come to the same conclusion about socialized medicine (maybe we did a long time ago, but it’s been ratified by the pandemic): It stinks!

  1. I have no idea. I have neither heard from him or seen him since March 2020. I don’t know if he is still practising but as he is an owner in the medical centre I expect he has moved into administration if he’s refused the shot? I should have been for a checkup but for now I’m monitoring myself and keeping my distance from health ‘professionals’.



  2. My doctor isn’t a bad bloke but is horribly overstretched.
    The bit I don’t trust is the frilly ‘health service’ around him.
    The receptionists who think they have epaulets, the nurses who drift through the day thinking everyone else has time to be so pedestrian. The school hours that don’t suit anyone not retired.
    And then there’s the illusion of choice.
    If you don’t get on with your GP you can always vote with your feet, except you can’t can you.



  3. It’s a no from me but I take no pleasure in saying that. My doctor and I have a relationship that goes back 30 years. Ok, he’s not perfect but at least we understand each other, at least we did until this year. I had to see him for repeats and he pushed the jab. So I pushed back and asked what early treatments he could offer me. He said not Ivermectin as it doesn’t work and there were no other early treatments. And the conversation went downhill from there. I left angry and fucked off that I really don’t know who to have as as doctor now since the relationship is on life support.

    Fuck you Ardern for destroying the 30 year relationship with my doctor. You evil, heartless bitch.



  4. Trust. No. Great guy though. Some great help over the last 10 years. Very positive manner and pleasant but. ………
    Made it hard and uncomfortable to get a simple vit D test.
    Other class mates who became doctors have all pushed vax and booster. Some unsolicited.. ….

    My dentist went on for 15 minutes to get my 12 yo vaxed. He pushed incorrect info on age vulnerability too.
    All captured I guess by various institutions. Very sad.
