I don't know how some doctors do it.  Most oncologists have never had cancer.  Most orthopedic surgeons have never gone under the knife.  Few therapists have ever fought overseas and experienced post traumatic stress disorder.  It must be hard to have empathy if you've never experienced the condition for yourself.

Norton Shores Michigan Chiropractor - By now, just about everybody has heard about the outbreak of a rare form of fungal meningitis that was caused by a “bad batch” of steroid injections.  These injections are commonly used in patients for the treatment of back pain.  This outbreak occurred back in September of 2012 and resulted in more than 400 cases of meningitis nationwide, 32 of which died from the illness.  Michigan led the way with more than 230 cases and 10 deaths.
