The Most Offensive Question I’m Asked As A Doctor

14 143
I’m very lucky to live a life where I get paid to do what I love, helping patients in my practice and around the world here on NOburn. As wonderful as that is, unfortunately, there are some costs. Today I wanted to open up and share with you some of the personal struggles I’ve had being a doctor in media, whether it be receiving disrespectful comments and questions from strangers to literally getting my identity stolen by hackers. Thanks to those of you who have always joined me in our mission to fight medical misinformation, and hopefully, you’ll continue standing by my side as we fight cyber bullying and judging medical professionals based on their looks.

I am sure a 26 year old female would not be disappointed with him as their doctor. Youtube channel or no

After working in a hospital for a bit I feel like the majority of doctors are hot lol 😂 I also enjoy people being surprised about what I do - I’ve got neon hair, facial piercings and tattoos. I do research in molecular neuroscience 😁

I had recently gotten a nose piercing and none of my family knew about it, granted I am 21 and live on my own. Later that week I went to go pay them a visit and the first thing they say is "Ew, why'd you get that? All it is is a booger catcher" I looked at them and said "Because I think I look beautiful" and that shut everyone up so I strongly agree with the comment made at 9:50.

My family doctor is an absolutely gorgeous woman (definitely could have been a model if she so chose), but I've always felt that for me personally, it was sooo empowering to see someone like her as my doctor growing as a young girl, and I took her way more seriously. She really is a fantastic doctor and I love going to her 🥰🥰🥰

I definitely understand what you mean... I get the whole "why did you go to school when you could model" garbage all the time. Jokes on them, I did BOTH!

about that topic. It was very reassuring to me, that I can be serious & smart and still be young.

I think the "Why did you become a doctor when you could have become a model" question is more a matter of people thinking that being a model is more fun/prestigious/lucrative than anything to do with your intelligence, I.e. it says more about what career they'd prefer themselves than their perception of your abilities. Btw, social research shows that we tend to perceive good-looking people as more intelligent/capable (the correlation between actual intelligence and beauty seems to be scientifically controversial for now), so while you may have run into the occasional salty person, your probably drew the longer straw, even professionally.

Do doctors legally have to to respond to someone saying "is there a doctor in the house?" Or can they choose to ignore it? Also I would hope no real doctor would ever ignore it. 😂

I get discriminated against by even doctors because I am plus size. No doctor has every really seen past that when I eat healthier than most "skinny" people. This has been an issue my whole life. I know my friend who has always been slim has also been discriminated against and ended up having something severely wrong with her. It frustrates me that this happens in the medical community when they are supposed to be there to help and not scorn.

Yo I’m actually glad you addressed the whole stupid ish of looks vs smarts. Throughout schooling I always had people would act jealous and then rude because I was “a girl and a blonde” which to them meant I was suppose to be dumb af. They would literally be like “but you’re blonde you’re suppose to be dumb” like bruh what?? I can’t help it that I was over there gettin all As and my genes just so happened to give me blonde hair! I always would tell people “Yeah and as a kid I was suppose to ask for dolls but no I asked for microscopes and test kits.”
I honestly don’t give af if people are gonna have issues with how I look when I’m trying to get a degree and job. Their problem, not mine. Besides I can’t even go to college yet due to Covid and I do NOT do online well at all, mainly online math like that ish is easy in person but online is like being told to do math that’s 5 levels higher. Plus I don’t even know what I’m majoring in because I learned about new things and now I’m conflicted.
