    What is the proper response to a doctor who says "you can google that" after every question I have? (e.g., what does something on my blood test results mean, what is XYZ, etc.)

    a. wtf you incompetent $%^$@# nitwit!?!?!
    b. (throw sharp object)
    c. google THIS (insert evil laugh here)
    d. ???

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't doctors supposed to answer questions instead of panning them off to a friggin' search engine?

    Sorry, end of rant. Thx for reading. (*wipes froth from mouth)

    Its "You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't" situation.

    If YOU say you were googling something and you would like them to check it out for you, then they tell you that you are online too much scaring yourself...
    If THEY tell you to google it they are just being straight up lazy. Google is free, the doctor is not. Ask him if he still wants to get paid.

    I agree tell him Google is free, and if you can skip paying for the visit since google is of no charge? See how he answers that. What a moron! Or you could say well I don't have any faith in the internet since I don't know what to believe, why don't you enlighten me dip@#@#?

    Can you tell I am bitter of Drs these days?
