I will tell patient to F off mild acne need referral for what? Come on la. In the end will get patient early appt with derm la.
Those of us who are Drs will know la. Even the FPs will admit privately. But of course cannot say in front of all the young Drs la.

Unregistered It's about money, but during the interview stage who would say that they enter medicine for the money

others choose a speciality based on prestige.
your Geri , gen med , renal doc more often than not after Im residency dunno what to apply, then ok let's put Geri as second choice as backup becuase dermatology I likely cannot get in anyway.
Psy trainees many many is I dun want be gp but I need a speciality.

I be frank la.
I choose FM because I don't like hospital calls. I like my pat to walk in to see me and walk out after seeing me. sometimes at work I dun feel respected by patient becuase I'm like a referralogist. come on la, mild acne u want derm referral? ok lo.
Its all about money.
Leave the real doctoring to the pple who want to doctor and earn less money.
