    Adam is the epitome of “I’m offended. Change your mind.”

          I appreciate you presenting both your initial points and your responses with nuance. I don’t think I’ll watch “Adam Ruins” anymore because I don’t appreciate how his initial video and his response lacked nuance, and therefore was incorrect on many counts.

              There are many, many people in positions of power who could learn valuable lessons on how to respectfully criticize and disagree with others, and how to respond to criticism, from you. The world would be a much more peaceful, productive place if people conducted themselves the way you do.

                The problem with Adam is he isn't giving you the whole picture only the negative nancy hot bits because sadly this generation feeds off of negativity.

                  I saw this comment somewhere and honestly it's this video in a nutshell.

                  Adam: *puffs out chest*
                  Mike: Chest bump bro!
                  Adam: no-

                    I think Adam is one of those people who blindly says "HOSPITALS OVERCHARGE, ITS ALL THEIR FAULT, THEY SET THE PRICES". Yes but.. they have reasons to jack up prices, but also theres no reason not to. People are gonna get the procedures. They have to, the only other option is oftentimes death. So its literally "buy my service or die". If prices were shown, then people could make informed decisions about procedures. We just did that at a doctors office for a sinuc infection. They broke down price for visit, prescriptions, even a shot, and we ended up getting it all because, heck, why not, and they were so open to answering questions and recommendations (they recommended the shot but said it really wasnt necessary, it just sometimes may help more). We were able to weigh the cost versus the benefits and decided the costs were totally acceptable.

                        Adam had said that you had an issue with them “turning people off” to mammograms and justified it with “We said women in their 40s should consult their doctors before mammograms”. You never said they didn’t. In fact, you even said that it was the placement of that disclaimer in their video that was the issue. And I agree 100%, disclaimers come first, to avoid people settling into the mindset that mammograms are bad for you, before you get to clear that up

                              I didn't watch the Adam Ruins Everything deal, but I'm just watching this video. I'm a healthcare attorney, primarily representing physicians and healthcare entities (although I do some plaintiff's work as well). So many folks go off without understanding the legal and regulatory background that motivate hospital policy/billing decisions. Society: don't get mad at physicians and hospitals, question your politicians.

                                After Adam's appearance on Joe Rogan's show, i think it's safe to say his credibility is completely gone, so I wouldn't really worry about what he thinks.

                                      I disagree with adam who the hell ever. One thing I would love a video on is an outlook on low population dense areas and its lack of access to specific doctors the rise of 'urgent care' and out patient treatment ( my son presently has an undiagnosed illness and we have been sent home with oxygen for 3 weeks waiting for a specialist to be here)

                                            Honestly really disappointed, Mike seemed to brush off basically everything and was super defensive this whole video. Would have loved if he chilled out before making this, seemed rushed.

                                              There’s just ONE thing that bothers me a bit about Dr Mike’s philosophy. It’s the notion that people should be coaxed into having a certain perspective, for their own good. I understand why he, and so many other doctors, would feel that way. I’m sure it’s frustrating to feel invested in a patient and watch them make bad decisions. But I feel like when doctors assume the role of “the parent”, it undermines a person’s sense of responsibility and their control over their own body. I think that can make many people feel very uncomfortable during an office visit (myself included).

                                              I suppose I just feel that it’s slightly condescending to suggest that, because some people may have emotions about mammograms, we shouldn’t expose them to emotionally evocative material. At the end of the day, it is an adult’s responsibility to choose to care for themselves. We shouldn’t manipulate the way information is presented to coerce them into making responsible choices. We should empower them to think critically, learn more, and make better decisions - which is, I think, most of what Dr Mike’s philosophy is all about. That’s something I have a lot of respect for! :)

                                                Social media is full of immature, prejudiced, ignorant, criticizing people. I love how Dr. Mike is an educated man, with strong convictions, who always speaks from his knowledge and experience.

                                                  Adam was honestly pretty unprofessional and defensive in his response to Doctor Mike's first video. Some of the things he said made it seem like he didn't even listen to Mike's points. I used to like Adam's show, but lately it's been getting more focused on oversimplifying topics and his response to Mike's very respectful and constructive criticism made me lose some of my respect for him.

                                                      I agree with basically everything you said Mike but it is important for you to take responsibility for not including the negative information about hospitals in the first video just like Adam's video it has bias and effects people so by you leaving that out someone who doesn't see this video may be left misinformed

I'm not a doctor but I tend to know more about medical issues than my friends and coworkers. I have to say that I left the video feeling that mammograms were a waste of time, full stop. Only after watching Dr. Mike and then rewatching Adam did I really notice that Adam actually does recommend mammograms at a certain age. So I'd say Dr. Mike's concerns about the message many women got from that video was true for me anyway.

Its good that you are willing to talk about your opinion, but Adam was obviously on the defensive. I'm sure he did put a lot of work in this, thought he had all the bugs figured out, but his retort was a bit childish.

Love the react videos and the interactions between you and your guests, makes putting up with the world easier, thank you.

Wish we expanded it to full health care, including dentistry, pharmacare and eyecare.
