Why medical costs are so high:

When a panel of doctors was asked to vote on adding a new wing to
hospital, the Allergists voted to scratch it and the Dermatologists
not to make any rash moves.

Neurologists thought the administration had a lot of nerve, and the
Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a misconception.

The Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted; the

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, the

hands of the whole thing.

The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the
Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter."

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists
the scheme wouldn't hold water.

The Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas and the
Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists left the decision up to some asshole
