This is so awful!

Thomas Eric Duncan was the first man with Ebola to travel into the United States. He was let into the country no problem and was originally released from a hospital even though he had a fever — and admitted he had recently traveled to the U.S. from Africa.

Eventually, he was readmitted to the hospital and diagnosed with Ebola.

Now, it's being reported that he's died this morning at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueHealthMedicineScience!SurgeryGIFs

Needle Capsule

Hmmmmm…

This sounds like a nice alternative to getting a needle at the doctor's office, but we're still not sure how we feel about it.

Scientists at MIT and Mass. Gen have come up with a way to take your medicine orally as opposed to intravenously.

But it isn't just your run of the mill pill. The way it works is once the compartment passes your stomach and hits the intestine, a coating on the pill will dissolve, and small needles will prick your insides as it goes through your digestive tract! AHHHH!

The Doctor Accused Of Taking A Selfie With Joan Rivers While She Was Under Anesthesia Comes Forward To Deny Those Ridiculous Claims

Filed under: Icky Icky PooJoan RiversMedicine

joan rivers doctor did not take selfie with her

Remember when everyone was up in arms when a reported staff member at Manhattan's Yorkville Endoscopy clinic claimed that Joan Rivers' personal doctor took a selfie with the comedienne while she was under anesthesia?

Well, Dr. Gwen Korovin, is saying she did no such thing at all!

Sources close to the doctor said the ENT Specialist made it very clear that the story CNN reported is completely false and that their source is just "making up lies."

Dr. Gwen also said she did not perform a biopsy on the late comedienne but did not say if she performed any other procedures on her.

Well, it sounds like we could believe her. Several of her own patients have come forward to say what a great doctor Dr. Gwen is.

With an "unblemished" track record, why would any doctor do something so deplorable as to take a selfie with an unconscious patient and tarnish their good name??

Joan Rivers' Personal Doctor Allegedly Took A Selfie During Her Throat Procedure

joan rivers selfie procedure doctor

This is absolutely horrendous.

According to a staff member at Manhattan's Yorkville Endoscopy clinic, Joan Rivers' personal doctor allegedly took a selfie in the middle of the procedure room while Joan had been under anesthesia.

Another doctor, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, then performed the endoscopy she had been scheduled for.

After the endoscopy, Joan's personal doctor (an ear, nose and throat specialist uncertified by the clinic) allegedly performed an unauthorized biopsy without Joan's consent, according to the staff member.

During this alleged biopsy is when Joan reportedly experienced cardiac arrest, according to the source.

If these allegations are true, we'd be shocked and disgusted at the level unprofessional incompetence on the part of her personal doctor.
