Doctors don't do anything except send you to other doctors and then send you bills. (1:51)

MEDICAL SCHOOL AND I'M GLAD

I DIDN'T THOUGH BECAUSE THESE

DOCTORS I GOT A BIG PROBLEM

WITH DOCTORS.

I DO, I GOT A PROBLEM.

I DON'T THINK THEY KNOW WHAT

THEY ARE DOING AND PLUS THE FACT

THEY CHARGE TOO MUCH MONEY.

I WAS AT THE DOCTOR'S

A FEW MONTHS BACK, I HAD SOME

ANKLE PROBLEMS, SO I GO THERE,

HE DOESN'T EVEN DO ANYTHING,

HE JUST SENT ME TO ANOTHER

DOCTOR.

SO THEN I GOT A BILL FOR $500.

SO I CALL UP BLUE CROSS AND

THEY REFUSE TO PAY IT.

NOW, UH, GRANTED I'M NOT INSURED

WITH BLUE CROSS, THAT'S TRUE.

THAT IS TRUE BUT STILL I THINK

IT IS A LITTLE WEASELY OF THEM

TO WEASEL OUT LIKE THAT.

[LAUGHTER]

BUT DOCTORS MAKE--

THEY ONLY GOOD THING YOU SAY

WELL BEING A DOCTOR IS COOL

'CAUSE YOU MAKE A LOT OF MONEY

SO THAT'S GOOD BUT THAT'S NOT

EVEN THE BEST PART.

YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK THEY BEST

PART OF BEING A DOCTOR IS?

WHEN YOU'RE A DOCTOR AND YOU

INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO SOMEBODY

YOU CAN SAY, HI, MY NAME IS

DOCTOR, WHATEVER YOUR NAME IS.

IN OTHER WORDS YOU CAN TELL

EVERYBODY WHAT YOUR CREDENTIALS

ARE UP-FRONT AND IT'S NOT

CONSIDERED BRAGGING BUT

NO ONE ELSE CAN DO THAT.

I CAN'T SAY "HI, I'M

EIGHT AND A HALF INCHES

NATURMAN, HOW ARE YOU?"

ALL RIGHT, 'CAUSE THOSE ARE

MY CREDENTIALS.

I GOT TO SLIP THAT INTO

CONVERSATION CASUALLY WHICH IS

HARD TO DO 'CAUSE IT NEVER

COMES UP.

IT IS ALWAYS AWKWARD.

IT'S ALWAYS LIKE "OH, SPEAKING

OF THE STOCK MARKET,

EIGHT AND A HALF."

[LAUGHTER]

THAT KIND OF CAME OUT OF

NOWHERE.

I ALWAYS THOUGHT DOCTORS

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THEY WERE DOING

BUT I GOT PROOF NOW.

BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE BEEN

WATCHING TV LATELY YOU HAVE

CERTAINLY NOTICED THAT EVERY

OTHER COMMERCIAL ON TV IS ONE

OF THOSE PRESCRIPTION DRUG ADS,

RIGHT?

APPARENTLY WE'RE SUPPOSED

TO TELL OUR DOCTORS WHAT TO

PRESCRIBE FOR US.

LIKE THAT PREVACID COMMERCIAL,

THEY'RE LIKE "ASK YOUR DOCTOR

ABOUT PREVACID".

NOW SHOULDN'T YOUR DOCTOR KNOW

ABOUT PREVACID?

ISN'T THAT THE GUY'S JOB?

IT'S LIKE "THERE'S NOTHING

WE CAN DO FOR YOU."

"OH, WHAT ABOUT PREVACID?"

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

CAPTIONING MADE POSSIBLE BY

COMEDY CENTRAL.

"HEY, YOU KNOW YOU'RE RIGHT,

THAT'S A GOOD POINT, I HADN'T

THOUGHT OF THAT.

NOW HOW MANY MILLIGRAMS IS GOOD,

DID IT SAY IN THE COMMERCIAL?

'CAUSE I DIDN'T SEE THE

COMMERCIAL."
