It’s hardly surprising that liberals would attack Ben Carson’s medical record. They have no class, and no shame.
When the New York Daily News reported that a “bombshell” report alleged that Ben Carson had been sued six times and had at one time even left a sponge in a patient’s brain, I had to chuckle because signs of desperation became quickly evident. Their source for the claim? The tabloid rag National Enquirer.
Let’s assume that their reporting is completely true. We all know doctors get sued all the time, so perspective matters.
- In low risk specialties, 75% of physicians will have been sued by age 65. In high risk specialties, this number increases to 99%.
- And the types of doctors that are the most likely to be sued? Neurosurgeons. In any given year, almost 20% of all neurosurgeons are sued.
To look at Ben Carson’s record, he performed 17,000 surgeries and was sued 6 times. In other words, 99.96% of Carson’s patients didn’t sue him. Isn’t that the kind of approval rating that politicians would kill for?
How ridiculous are the liberal media’s attacks getting? Help spread the truth about their latest smear and share this article on social media.
