Isn't predicting a patient's future health, one of the jobs of a doctor? :chinscratch:
You’re like an STD: No one wants you, everybody hates you, and you’re a reminder of the devastating consequences of not using protection during sex.


Amount I have so far denied the BBC - £1308

Maybe in the UK but maybe the yank Doc wasn't paid the correct surcharge or copay?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you do say will be misquoted, and then used against you.

But he didn't say no doctor will predict.

He said no doctor can predict.

And the phrase "no doctor" doesn't limit his comment to American doctors, or even doctors in America.

It applies to all doctors, in the entire world, irrespective of their nationality, location or field.

If a doctor can't predict your future health, the treatments they prescribe for you are merely guesswork.

Not very reassuring, is it?  :D
