It takes two years to see a dermatologist here, and the nurse advice line is right at the end of the phone....that's why.

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¬†ūü§£

This really made me LOL!

I'm really curious where you live that it takes two years to see a Dermatologist? 

I guess my area is just saturated because I live in FL.

The nurse whose advice the pimple popping doc questioned is a member of allnurses.

You also dont need to be a MD to explain the difference between sunburn and sun poisoning. 

You don't need to be a nurse either.  I don't get why either has to monopolize educating.  Lab Techs, CNAs, Dieticians, RTs, PTAs, OTAs, all know enough about the work they do to be able to educate patients on things that apply to their jobs.  But unless you have the "RN" or "MD" after your name the medical world treats you like you're too stupid to explain how to get to the bathroom without falling.  Healthcare needs so much less ego.

She pops pimples for a living-sounds like a stupid fetish taken to an extreme with a tv show and the LAST clinical person I would ask skincare advise of and take seriously. She can go back to her zit popping-we can handle the education on general healthcare-it’s part of our role and we are licensed to do so.

Gosh, I guess I shouldn't have done education once on the difference between a stroke and heat stroke. #notaboardcertifiedneurologist

I use to like her before her TV show.

That post makes her look like a moron. Does med school even teach these doctors the role and scope of the nurse?

Well, howdy, everyone. I'm the nurse/writer at the center of this.

Like everyone else, I found it kind of amusing that Dr. Lee would question my...authority? Expertise? Audacity?...in writing about sunburn.

It strikes me that this reflects the age-old physician attitude that nurses are their servants and nothing more. In fact, I'm writing an essay sort of along those lines.

I do appreciate everyone's support! It's no fun to get called out (even anonymously) by a celebrity dermatologist on Twitter. LOLOL

Such ego. This is very clearly indicative of her attitude and/or insecurity.
