Yep.
It is a lot safer in a lot of ways. It's just over the top.
I think it depends on your insurance coverage to. My wife has really good insurance through the school district.
And I think doctors have a little tendency to take advantage of it by putting their thumb on the scale.
Of course, so as to offset the times they get short changed by others who have not so good of coverage.
 
I agree with the level of insurance. I’ve got state insurance which most Dr’s won’t take. Hard to find a dentist or eye Dr. Thank God my cardiologist and GP take that insurance no questions asked.

Just heard on local news that NH is dropping face masks tomorrow. Live Free and Die  state {#Lol}

The narrative was interesting, knowing that they're real people from Lou's world, but it was all pretty dated pretty fast.

I was thinking today... that yesterday, I had minor surgery on a finger to remove an old man's cyst. And thinking how much money it cost to make the lawyers happy.
Had to go to a surgery center for four hours fifteen minutes. One hour of prepping... two hours of sitting there in a bed... 15 minutes worth of surgery and a hour of recovery. (I was fine in 15 minutes.) Then wheeled out in a wheelchair.
And we wonder why our insurance rates are so high. Back in the olden days... I could've bitten on a piece of leather... and they would've hacked it out and I would've been done. Ridiculous.
I actually had a planters wart burned out of the bottom off my foot in '71. I went in the doctor's office. He gave me a local. He fired up his electrical burner. Made some smoke. Put a band aid on it. And I walked out. No follow up appointment. I survived just fine.



What's interesting is I'm pretty sure the incidence of malpractice has not decreased in the last 4 decades. I remember "tort reform" being a big deal a long time ago and I don't think there's any reason to allow things to swing the other way so far that an injured party is given a cupcake and a Get Well Soon card and told to beat it. But yeah you should take on a bit of risk when you go to the doc.

Our pizza go-to is now Papa Murphy's take-and-bake. Although a local place makes a 'Grease Bucket' pie that's something special.
