I only have an ordinary experience dealing with doctors. I have gone in over the years for various complaints, and unless my complaints were for something really straightforward, like something needs to be frozen off my skin or I need travel medications, the only thing I've ever gotten from my doctor were "prescriptions" for over-the-counter allergy or pain medications, blood tests that always came out fine and admonitions to just take it easy for a while. My dentist gave me a prescription for antibiotics but instead I just waited out the infection. Took a month or more but I lived.
Turns out all the various somewhat vague complaints I have had were easily cured with diet.
