I couldn’t agree more about Dr. Jarvi. He’s a fantastic doc and he’s not trying to make money off of PVPS guys - he’s just a urologist who researches and treats PVPS and does a damn good job of it.
For the record, that’s not a knock to Dr P. or Dr. Marks, I think they’re both great docs as well.
My whole life I’ve enjoyed ‘free’ healthcare and haven’t had any unnecessary treatments pushed on me in the name of profit. I’m not saying that all US doctors are putting profits before patients, but when you can make more money by ‘selling’ more tests, procedures, meds, consultations, etc. who’s to say that your doctor won’t sell you more of their services just to make more money?
Ya know, kinda like when you go to a shady mechanic who finds a ton of stuff ‘wrong’ with your car that needs to be fixed. He’s in it for the money, and a for profit healthcare system has the potential to be exactly the same - sure there will be lots of honest ones, but there will be crooks out there just looking to make a buck.
