Not a question. Doctor, can you kindly get out of your cozy office, there is a mile-long line in your waiting room and they all need to be educated... is there a Starbucks somewhere near, I am gonna to take my coffee break! (speeding away)

I had kind of thought a Dr who specializes in popping pimples wasn’t someone to take seriously as a medical professional, but my bad.

If the Dr would like to take over educating the patients on their conditions, discharge instructions, medications, health promotion / lifestyle choices.... that would be fantastic. Please go right ahead! Feel free to notify the hospitals and other employers of nurses that this really is a job for the Doctors.

I look forward to her statement of "it wasn't me who said that. It was the person in charge of my social media."

Yes! I once sought services from Dr. Pimple Popper:

I'm pretty sure one of our main responsibilities is patient education. You also dont need to be a MD to explain the difference between sunburn and sun poisoning.

She's deleted original tweet so its all gone for me to check it out. Patient education is such a massive part of our role, she's a buffoon if she really believes this.

She peeked out of the window, saw mile-long line for sign "sunscreen RX and education, see our Board Certified Dermatologist first", fainted and accidentally pressed "delete" button 🤣

The real issue is public health literacy... Nothing to do with md/nurse but if you need an example, just look at the current pandemic.
