There is a time for departure even when there’s no certain place to go.

No. If you want to be a doctor, go to medical school. Put in the work. Period.

Thanks Arthur Caplan, for throwing it down like you always do:

Arthur Caplan isn’t convinced. The New York University bioethicist believes that the potential for serious medical mistakes is too high. “Crowds are great places to turn when you need to know where to find the best fries in town. Lots of people can become experts on fries. But everyone can’t be a medical expert,” Caplan says.

A misdiagnosis can cost time, by increasing how long it takes for patients to receive the right diagnosis, and money, by leading to unnecessary and expensive testing to rule out unlikely conditions. Unlike in the traditional medical system, patients have no recourse if something does occur. “The liability waiver you have to sign undercuts the legitimacy of what they’re doing. You don’t need the potential to hold someone liable when you’re buying pantyhose or ordering fries, but not in medical situations,” Caplan says.

Caplan is also concerned about the potential for the site to be taken over by “people with kooky ideas who think kale shakes are the solution to everything.”
