We just saw a piece on CNN about how to choose a doctor in which they suggested that people make a bunch of appointments for “a hangnail” and shop around.
“Interview some doctors. Go to them for like, a hangnail or something, and see how they deal with it. Try a couple out. You know, you wouldn’t marry the first person you met, right? So you wouldn’t want to marry the first doctor you met,” said CNN’s Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen.
This sounds like, um, expensive advice Liz—and the marriage metaphor is icky.
Can you do better than CNN? Leave some advice in the comments and we’ll post the best submissions. Thanks!
