BOCA RATON, FL – An area mother who recklessly pushed her son into the field of medicine has been charged with 6 counts of parental malpractice by the Child Protective Services (CPS). During a pretrial arraignment, Dr. Sri-Sheshadariprativadibyankaram was ordered by the judge to admit that his own mother pushed him into medicine.
“I was full of potential before I became a doctor,” stated Dr. Sri-Sheshadariprativadibyankaram. “I could have succeeded in many other professions. Now I’m condemned to a life of constant charting, mindless mouse clicking, enormous debt, incessant pay cuts after years of deferred income, micromanagement by administrators, endless regulations, patient complaints, crippling depression, and liability.”
CPS officials claim that the doctor’s mother had easy access to mind-blowing physician burnout statistics which are available with simple Google searches. In addition, she could have visited KevinMD.com to click on any link in the website’s enormous library of physician burnout articles. In fact, it has been widely reported that even stock photo models who pose as burned out doctors are now themselves experiencing burnout.
“Your Honor, I hope that my current situation can serve as a cautionary tale to parents, most often Asian, who force their children into medicine,” said Dr. Sri-Sheshadariprativadibyankaram. “The information is out there about how damaging a career in medicine can be, if only they would take the time to open their eyes. Now, Your Honor, please excuse me because I just got texted by an administrator that my pay will be cut again by 50% if I don’t close all my open charts from my frenetic clinic today before midnight.” The doctor then sprinted out of the courtroom with a defeated and lifeless look in his eyes.
