Next time you see a doctor, make sure that doctor graduated from an accredited medical school and is licensed in your state. Here is a website where you can do that created by the American Medical Association. Even if your doc isn’t a member, s/he should be listed there. Some states also offer licensing databases if you Google “medical board of STATE.”
Do NOT go to a politician with NO medical experience who will feed you disinformation and may in the case of trauma minimize your experience and give you improper care. Even if he is on a science committee (a credential that now seems suspect because it has been given to him).
