Fox News special report,“Beware! Danger at the Doctor” airs Saturday, June 25 at 5:00 pm PST; Sunday, June 26 at 6:00pm PST.
Joseph J. Neuschatz M.D. said this:
“My life as an anesthesiologist was very similar to the life of airline pilots: hours and hours of boredom, interrupted by moments of terror. The induction of anesthesia was equivalent to the take-off, its maintenance represented the flight and the emergence from anesthesia, compared to the landing. The major difference? TIME! Being on time is more important in operating rooms than in airports. Our “travelers” wait for their “take-offs” on empty stomachs.
I worked with all kind of surgeons: some who were always on time, some who were never on time and a few who were on time, from time to time. But, and please believe me, I even worked with a surgeon who did time. How come? For the simple reason that, soon after his divorce and remarriage, he sank his boat and burned his house, for the insurance money!
I was always under the impression that putting a doctor in jail was a rare event. My opinion changed recently when I discovered this book. The encyclopedia of doctor’s misbehavior.
For me, it was a very interesting and a very painful read.
BUT…. THANK GOD, I AM NOT LISTED INSIDE!”
