View Full Version : Allegory on modern medicine

Yesterday I came up with a good allegory for how I see modern medicine.

A doctor is like a car salesman, and a surgeon is like a car mechanic.

In other words a doctor is useless, like a car salesman, selling the drugs of Big Pharma... whereas a surgeon can actually heal people with skill replacing organs etc.
