Are you the worst doctor?

By

Birch Aquarium, La Jolla, CaliforniaMany years ago, the great comedian George Carlin stated that if you ranked the nation's doctors, there had to be a worst one. Someone has to be at the bottom of the list. Makes you think, doesn't it?

I was reminded of that recently when a friend asked me to rank The Beatles' songs. I've tried to do that many times before but find that I can't. Each song is different and provides me with a different mood or memory. I like them all, and trying to rank them does a disservice to each song and the moods and memories that each song brings to me.

Ranking and labeling things seems to be part and parcel of human nature, and it's one way that people choose which professional they are going to work with. They might rank them on price, hours open, type of services, or even things that really don't have anything to do with the work being considered. For example, I've had people choose me because I was from Texas, had a cat, liked gardening, liked trains, and probably a couple of other things that I'm not remembering right now.

How are your prospective Clients ranking you? Is it time to evaluate your business and services to ensure that you are not the worst doctor?

There is actually a site to rank doctors...

http://www.ratemds.com/

Its kind of scary actually. Find out where your doctor ranks.

 

Maybe we should have a system like this for real estate. Might be a great way to weed out the "worst" agents.

Hey, Folks!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I had a lot of fun doing this and hope you enjoyed the fruits of my labor.

Since I'm so late getting back to the comments in my own blog, I won't take the time to respond to each comment individual. What I will do is visit your blogs, read your posts, and comment there. That way you'll get a few points from my visit and I just might learn something, make a new friend, etc.

I will read through all the comments here, and if there are any that need a response, I'll make those below.

Best wishes to everyone for health, happiness, peace, and prosperity!

Hey, David - Revolution 9 is the worst Beatles song, but when you realize that it's not a song but something much more, and then listen to it intent and creatively, it's brilliant.

Hey, Tamara - When I went to buy my handy dandy Canon Rebel XSi on the Internet, I checked the reviews of the company. I found 14 negative reviews, and the were pretty bad. But when I looked at the over 13,000 positive review, well, everyone is entitled to one mistake for every 1,000 transactions or so.
