Unfortunately a lot of systemic issues addressed on this show are near impossible to do anything about because at least 40% of Americans don’t give a fuck about you if you are female, a poc, gay or basically anything not white, male and straight (preferably wealthy too).

If you think that being a woman or black makes you least likely to get good medical help, which it does, just imagine being transgender. Or even worst, being intersex. As an intersex people I can tell you that when I tell doctors that ai am intersex and what possible congenital conditions I might had been born with (I said what possible because most intersex people are misdiagnosed more than once before they get a correct diagnose), I can see smoke coming out of their ears as their little brains overload. The ones that really get to me are the ones that try to act like their know what intersex really means (no it is not a new word for "hermaphrodite" - funny!) or understand the conditions and the many variations of them. Yet I can tell that 99% of doctors do not know their butthole from a hole on the ground when it comes to intersex conditions. My advice to people in general. When you go to see a doctor, arm yourself with the one thing they hate the most for their patients to have. That is knowledge. Learn all you can about your conditions and signs and symptoms. Don't take the word of a doctor as if it was the word of God himself. Of something does not make sense say so. But do not because a disrespectful pain in the ass. But an educated pain in the ass. Either way doctors hate that. They hate when you question them with facts and medical knowledge. You'd be surprise how they change the tune of their sings when they see you know are medically educated.

I am a 25 year old white woman who looks barely 18. I’ve been in knee pain for three months now while seeing an orthopedic specialist who has continually minimized my complaints of pain and that his treatments aren’t working and the pain is getting worse. I had to ASK him for an MRI after two cortisone shots caused excruciating pain and didn’t reduce the pain. I’ve also had issues getting him to sign off on my disability claims even as I’m LIMPING into his office. I left his office today weeping because he made me feel so small and like he didn’t believe me. It the most frustrating thing.

If anyone wants to learn more about the problem of racism and sexism in medicine, I recommend reading the book by Maya Dusenbery called, "Doing Harm, The Truth About How Bad Medicine and Lazy Science Leave Women Dismissed, Misdiagnosed, and Sick." It looks like this is where John Oliver got much of the information. Another book on the topic of racism and sexism in medicine is called, "The Hidden Malpractice, How American Medicine Mistreats Women," by Gena Corea. This book dates back to the 1970s and the Women's Health Movement. The book explains how medical practice, itself, has been influenced and directed by the white male patriarchal beliefs since the doctors were first required to be accredited, and became "professionals" in the 1830s. The book is full of horror stories about women being mistreated by the healthcare system. It also discusses how black women have been treated particularly badly. The book mentions how white women were denied the right to be sterilized, even up to the 1970s. In contrast to black women, were sterilized against their will even up to the1970s. The book recounts a horror story of a black woman who in 1972, went to a hospital for an abortion. The doctors told her they would next do "a tubal ligation," figuring her to be too stupid to know this meant "tying her tubes." The book quotes her, saying, "I'm just glad I know- I mean, what if I had not heard the words before? They were slipping it right by. And I said, "Do you think I'm an idiot? My blood pressure just shot up And I said "No." I would have done anything to get out of there. They said, "You're in now. I got kind of scared. I worked at the university. I had never been on welfare." Discussion about these problems are finally happening. Still, it's hard to find material on the subject. Another book I recommend is "All in My Head: An Epic Quest to Cure an Unrelenting, Totally Unreasonable and Only Slightly Enlightening Headache," by Paula Kamen. Last, but not least, the old TV show, "The Golden Girls," did a two part episode on this subject, called, "Sick and Tired." The writers and actors in this show handled this subject excellently. Parts of that episode are here on Youtubes. Also, Samantha Bee did a piece on Full Frontal about this topic and how it relates to a disease called "endometriosis." That episode is called, "The History of Women's Pain," and it's here on Youtube.

He should also talk about mental status. I take medication for depression and anxiety so every time i go to the doctor, no matter what symptoms I say i have, they always try to pin it on my meds or my mental health. I went to the doctor a few months ago because of urgency and pain when urinating and they sent me home because "it's probably stress." ????? A few days later, I was peeing blood and my kidney was infected. FINALLY they let me have antibiotics. For a few years, my throat will randomly close up at night and I'll have shooting pains in my chest. The first time it happened I went to the emergency room and they said it was a panic attack. I told them it wasn't, I've had panic attacks that's not how they feel to me. Also, ummm, I wasn't panicking it just hurt. Every time I try to see a doctor about it they ALWAYS and without fail brush it off as something to do with my mental health. No doctor ever takes my complaints seriously.

This reminds me when I was in the ER because I thought I tore something in my abdomen from untreated bulimia b/p cycles and he told me to try using a toothbrush (rather than my fingers because he did in fact ask) next time. A medical professional just told a bulimic 17yo (at the time) girl how to vomit better... Btw it was my gallbladder, even me describing the pain type and location he didn’t think to do an ultrasound.

I once chatted with a doctor from the US. Im a medical student, and the way he talked, the sense of entitlement and arrogance put me off. The idea of being a humble doctor was inconceivable to him, the idea that doctor can be limited in his efforts to treat a patient was not entertained. To him, he was god to the patient, and when i asked him what happens if he loses a patient, he dismissed me by saying that will never happen because he is that good. How can you be a healthcare professional if you dont realize how fragile a human life can be?

Honestly my Dr hates us all equally. I came in having a massive asthma attack and he prescribed me a steroid pack and sent me out the door while still having the asthma attack. Luckily and quite ironically his office is attached to the hospital which I walked to and got admitted for 5 days before they, again ironically, asked why my dr did not admit me to the hospital to begin with given he is the Chief of Medicine at the hospital.

But there are differences in biology between the average white and black male. I suggest you go and take the test yourself. It's quite difficult. John Oliver is making a moot point there. Blacks not having thicker skin isn't such an obvious question. How are you so sure they don't? Plus the actual question talked about collagen content in the skin. One of the question asks about black people having denser bones than white people. And that fact is true. So is that also so obvious?

Unfortunately, this is a fantastically naive consideration of this issue. It completely ignores the issues of Bayesian diagnostics, harms of over diagnosis, and the opiate epidemic. I love your show, Mr. Oliver, but I'd ask you to follow me on hospital rounds for a few days to learn the truth behind the so called medical "bias". This episode completely misses the actual issues and challenges.

Seriously, "Bring A White Man" is an effective way to get good medical care. If I go to the doctor or ER alone, the medical professionals don't listen, or worse, leave me in a room alone, for hours, to receive zero medical treatment prior to being sent home, but if I drag one of my white male friends along, to basically repeat everything I say, I receive actual medical care.

There is bias, I don’t think it’s straight forward gender or racial bias thou. It’s income bias. Hear me out here. Whites are more likely to earn more income than blacks, therefore, they are more likely to be treated in better hospitals or by better doctors. Same goes with gender. Males are more likely to earn more income than females, therefore, they are more likely to receive better and more expensive medical treatments than females. To measure gender bias or racial bias here, you need to look into countries where income and medical treatment are not correlated. In other words, look into countries where medical services are free and equally distributed.

When we accept that sexist & racist institutions exist we collectively create that fiction in our lives and misconstrue the world around us. Sure there are racist people but this is victim hood mentality straight to the brain. These stories are personal anecdotes. The far and few chosen out of countless cases. These articles are hand picked. I’m just saying I used to believe all this stuff. Now if you research a little on the other side you see the motives of both parties. (dem & rep) Democrats talk about color and sex all the time. All these topics to distract and separate us. GOP talks about actual policies and reform - they’ve always stayed the same. Dems stick their finger to the twitter wind. And they’ve become socialist because of it. I’m sad to say he supports their agenda to the T This is what he gets paid to do. To get into your perception. It’s so easy with comedy man

Would love to see a patented Oliver Rant(tm) about Lyme disease showing both sides of the medical and research controversy, but emphasizing how little funding there is for resolving these controversies. Even as tick-borne illness and Lyme disease explode into a global pandemic, expanding into Canada where it is forecasted in Climate change-related research to become highly endemic in all areas east of the Mississippi River, PTLDS remains one of the worst and longest running controversies in the history of medicine, having raged for more than 30 years. We owe it to the cumulative 70K to 2M patients suffering from long term health problems related to Lyme disease infection to provide the funding to resolve this issue. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6480773/

I’m a disabled woman. After a surgery, I was pretty sure I was developing pneumonia, likely from intubation because my immune system sucks. It is a big concern after the type of surgery that I had. I had to go to the ER *3 times* before they’d do imaging on my chest, and I only got it because my dismissive male surgeon wasn’t there and I instead had a female ER doctor. Shocker, I had awful pneumonia, severe enough that I had to get IV antibiotics! They were seriously concerned for my safety. And the doctor told me that my surgeon or his nurses should have given me a spirometer (lung exerciser) to prevent the development of pneumonia, but they never even mentioned it, even after I came to the ER complaining of lung issues! Now, my husband comes to most of my appointments and I am always taken more seriously.

I am a doctor, and I agree with most of the things he says...... bias is real in most of the parts of u.s and serious steps should be taken to deal with that. However, it is true about people from different races having different biology.... it's not me saying that, its years and years of research and it is very important for a doctor to know these differences to give a better treatment.... but, I dnt think blacks have thick skin or bad nerve endings, that's just bad research.....

My sister died because of this. She went to the doctor because she wasn’t feeling well - dizzy, tired, body aches and the doctor told her she was probably coming down with a cold or the flu and gave her a prescription for antibiotics. Less than 24 hours later she was dead. She was having a heart attack. The doctor did No tests. No cultures. No other inquiries. Gave her a prescription and sent her on her way.
