This is probably the randomest post ever, since I’m not a doctor, and I do not know any gastroenterologists, but these people really deserve more recognition.
1: These are the people who study for 2 or 3 years after the torturous 4 years of med school…for what? To muck around in people’s guts all day? To operate on shit-filled large intestines? Or to fix up stomachs full of semi-digested food and digestive juices?
2: They don’t get nearly as much recognition as other doctors, even though they prove to be just as important: after all, they are the specialists when it comes to appendicitis, stomach cancer, and other such diseases, many of which can be fatal if not treated properly.
3: The name itself: What type of idiot would think to give them such an unpronounceable, messy name?
But, again, this is just my weird opinion on an even weirder matter.
