Real Doctor vs TV Doctor | Medical Drama Myths | Doctor Mike

  • Published on Mar 25, 2018
  • It probably doesn’t surprise you to hear that I often get asked about the reality of the popular doctor tv shows like Grey’s Anatomy, House, ER, Good Doctor, Scrubs, etc. In this video, I tackle the most perpetuated tv medical drama myths about working as a doctor in a hospital. It's pretty funny because technically I am a TV doctor because I work in news but I hope to you it's clear I am referring to fictional tv doctors!

    If you watch until the end you’ll know that I have never watched a full Grey’s Anatomy episode and if you guys get this video to 10k likes, I will watch a full episode and record my reactions as a stand-alone YT video! I'll call it Real Doctor Watches Grey's Anatomy! Now go smash those like and share buttons!!! Also, don’t forget that I will be doing a monthly video reading the comments you leave so go ahead, jump into the comments section. Love you all!

    my fiancé owns a practice. he’s been practicing for 24 years. and he says that because of malpractice insurance and all other expenses Mike talked about, he didn’t even break even for YEARS after opening his practice. Yes, we are living extremely comfortable today .. but for him it took a long time to get here.

    My sister (who is in final year of med school) said that once there was a code blue and everyone in the hospital ran to the emergency room, except for ONE DOCTOR. He apparently said "it's none of my business. Other doctors can handle it." And everyone was high key SHOCKED at this man's arrogance. Sadly, the patient was a little baby or kid (I can't remember) but they were so critical that they sadly didn't make it...what do you think of that doctors atrocious behaviour, Doctor Mike?

    Hello doctor I live in Phoenix Arizona here I see most hospital here use nurses,N,P or P.A there should be more Dr. In hospital. When the p.a,n.p or even a nurse say sorry I don't know and want you to see a specialist out side the hospital that's why I'm there because the wait to see a specialist is to long and I'm worried about the program now. I've even ask to see the doctor and they say he or she is really busy SO WHAT I've been waiting 2+hours in the waiting room then another 2+hours on a nurse,N.P and then they send in a P.A, I'm there to be seen by a doctor if I need a specialist after I'm done there and have a better understanding of what is going on with me then I will set the appointment up with the specialist. Thanks
