High Costs & Judgmental Medicine
By Charles Moon


October 13, 2009

I am so sad that Mr. Parks feels the way he does about his medical care. The fact that he is alive and able to write his opinions means the system worked for him. I am sure Mr. Parks has a family and friends that love him. There is no price that can be put on a human life. I could have been his nurse at KGH or on the ambulance that saved his life.

As health care professionals we don't care who you are, just that we try to give you the best care possible. Many many people were involved in your care -- maybe a simple thank you would be more appropriate than complaining about the the ones that saved your life.
