Doctors love doing stuff - whether it's ordering tests; interpreting scans; prescribing medicines; or performing surgery. This is what they have been trained to do , and they are happy to continue doing this. And it doesn't hurt that this is exactly what patients expect ! After all, isn't that what patients go to doctors for ?
However, the truth is that doctors are so much in love with intervening, that they forget that sometimes their interventions cause more harm than good. They forget to look at the big picture.
This is why this list of DO NOT DO
medical interventions from NICE ( National Institute of Clinic Excellence), UK , is so helpful !
If your doctor tells you to do anything on this list, please get a second opinion !
