but the pay gap's a myth though? Hospitals would only hire women otherwise
What an ignoramus. Women choose to spend more time helping the patient, not racking up the numbers.
I'll have to ask my niece who is an ER physician if this is true. LOL. what a dimwit that guy is.
"Women doctors will drop out of leadership roles due to how they are treated" … so , men font face mistreatment? And if you drop from a leadership role because of your feels , then you probably don't need to be a leader
Maybe female physicians care more about their patients & giving better care takes more time. This guy is a Dr. for the money not to help the sick. I’m not a doctor but I probably care more about people in general than this sexist ass. He’s not trying to fix the world, he’s only trying to fix his wallet …….
Gary Tigess is an ill-informed cretin! He is offensive and misogynist!
Wow that doctors testicles really need to crawl back up inside him.
Men have to denigrate women because woman are stronger, they bear the children, raise the children, they maintain families, and rivet beams. men have to denigrate. Why have a partner walking at your side when you can use your loved ones AS PUNCHING BAGS because YOU ARE INSECURE.
Will all female physicians please apologize for the pay gap between them and women in ALMOST EVERY OTHER PROFESSION. Thank you 🙂
Man bump that!!!! You stand by your comment doctor!!!!
what an ass
It doesn't matter how you "feel", it matters what data shows. And it wasn't shown here any. If you don't like what you are paid, then just quit. It's the advantage of a free capitalist society
As a medical transcriptionist I typed both male and female physician's reports. By far the physicians who saw the most patients daily in my personal experience were two female ones, one of whom, worked 15-hour days and would see up to 35 patients a day in her office. Why do I suspect this idiot Texas doctor is a hardcore Trump supporter? LMAO
He probably needs to get laid. He has some testrorone issues and he's trying to overcomplicate for something small perhaps. I'm not a doctor but my physical is a woman and it's the best care I've ever received.
A lot of guys think this…they just are not dumb enough to put it in print.
That's another problem with doctors. They're in a rush, and work too hard. When needless, dangerous surgeries plummet 80-95% in this country and doctors spend more time with patients before rushing them out the door with fake chemical cures in their hands, our health care will finally improve in the interests of health instead of the interest of profits.
It is true though, just he worded it harshly. Many female physicians choose to work less hours and take less patients so that they can get out earlier to take care of their family. They know when they negotiate their hours that because of this they will be paid less. There are also plenty of women who choose not to do this and earn the same / more than men. The basic fact is, women physicians do earn on average less than men because they work less hours, not because "they're not working as hard".
Incorrect. Women and men are not allowed to be paid more or less on the sole basis of gender. Its been illegal since "The Equal Pay Act of 1963". Meaning if these women are getting paid less for no reason (which they're not) they can take it to court.
This is exactly why people dont hire women. They feae they'll pull shit like this. They dont fear EVERY woman of doing that, they fear the minority that can ruin lives with no evidence, logic, or reason.
Too late to apologize, TOO LATE!!!
Could have easily ended the video at 1:27 but I guess they deserved some fun with it lol
And how about the 5+ studies, including in NEJM, showing that patient mortality rates are LOWER with female physicians. In fact, a massive study was JUST published on thousands of heart attack patients to ERs in Florida. Mortality rates w/ these patients were LOWER under female docs. I'm a male medical student telling that loser doctor to either do his research or piss off you sexist loser.
I wonder who gets the better outcomes
What a jackass!
Stop persecuting US CONSERVATIVES!!!!#CNNisFAKEnews#ResistTheVulgarLeft#LiberalsAreViolent#Haters#NoWeaponFormedAgainstTrumpShallProsper
It is ILLEGAL to pay women less than men. Women, even doctors, do not get PAID less. They may EARN less which is what the Texas doctor said. EVERYONE knows this but they don't let a fact get in the way of some juicy indignation and special pleading.
Another sick mind…
If you see more patients you will make more money. If you see less patients you will make less money. If the average male doctor sees more patients regularly than the average female doctor they would in theory make more money.The fact that women do not see as many patients of men can have many reasons.– Most of the time they have the responsibility of being a mother. So they have to sacrifice work for their children. – Some patients may feel like a male doctor would be more appropriate. – and othersCNN is trying to make the phrase ‘Don’t work as hard’ sound like he’s calling women ‘sloppy’ or ‘lazy’Let’s imagine that all male and female doctors are payed the same average money for the same number of patients. And if there’s still a income inequality in that field hen it’s surely because of what I mentioned. I’m NOT saying that that’s GOOD. Women DO NOT need to be pressured by society to sacrifice work. this is the end make them financially vulnerable. And that a dangerous situation for them. What I’m saying is that if the reason is what I mentioned it’s our responsibility to change society. Empower women.
So one idiot spews ignorance – and suddenly this is an issue to address? Who really believes this garbage? When I see a doctor – the last thing on my mind is whether it is a female or male. Christ. Stop making yourself a victim. STOP!!!!!!
What a jackass. Most male doctors are playing golf when not working, most female doctors are handling their families when not at work.
CNN working in truth and fact. That would be a first.
Like physicians really work "hard". Get the fuck outta here.
What an idiot. I’ll bet ya ten dollars that he’s gonna lose patients.
Males are far more likely to have cheated, to obtain their credentials.
Stop hiring women who wanna fuck/suck their way to the top. Get rid of the office eye candy and get women who are actually worth it
this is about as fake news as you can get
Triggered feminist (Brooke) detected!
Anyone else really want to fuck that cnn reporter?
Based on Tigges' comments, we can at least rule out that the pay gap is related to intelligence.
How can you confidently state that the data shows a certain trend when you fail to provide even a few good examples backed by statiscal evidence, and don't cite any of it? And then you have a news network swallowing it all up and nodding along without question as if this person is Jesus. Comon people. Even the outrage on this woman's face is fake, can't you see that?
Wow this guy is getting bashed for messing up once publicly in life. Some of you Liberals are hunks of shit. Not saying what he did is right, but he did it once you don’t need to threaten to kill him my god.
I agree with the Texas doctor! I see at least 100 female patients a day! And by patients I mean prostitutes! Melania… can you come look at this rash!
Lawmakers? More like #Lawbreakers!
They all will be replaced by AI.
I will only see female physicians. Men are heartless and don't give a shit about female patients. They don't listen and then they tell you that its all in your head.
Woman work harder and they are more wise.
"Allow me to fill in your knowledge gap…" oooh, I think someones gonna need some aloe vera and antibiotics for that sick burn. Good luck finding a nurse to apply them, too. X3My ophthalmologist saved me from going completely blind, and my diabetic specialist is an endocrinologist who has done wonders for my management. Both women, both exceptional practitioners. Every time I see my either, the waiting rooms are packed. Don' tell me women in medicine aren't working "hard enough."
I am in the tech industry for decades and I can honestly and categorically say that women are not even close to men in hard work and dedication.
Despite all sorts of efforts from the management to encourage them – to the point of pumpering- in every way.
Because wahmen are privileged huh, and nothing men can do about it
Yeah mf ,you maybe golf too much
If you are going to apoligized for shit then dont say it to begin with dumb ass
I'd like to know what the national data actually say rather than the anecdotal responses of a few female physicians.
It probably seems like it to him because women usually work smarter not harder.
WHAT A DICK…..
Based upon my own experiences, gender is not enough of a factor in determining someone's abilities – it can inform the conversation about type of work, duration of physical exertion, but so can someone's overall relative physical health, too. I see all of these gender arguments as childish, petty, and without merit really. Each PERSON brings something different to the table, and their basket of tools is different from YOUR basket of tools. I think we waste a lot of time trying to fill headlines, yet imparting something that only wishes it live in the same house as 'wisdom'. People have stereotypes – that's their problem, likely this Doctor in Texas has a limited range of friends due to his perceptions and views, he has self-limited his exposure to the world and chosen to say something he must know by now would infuriate others: why did he say it? Could he be wrong? Did he do his homework, or just make a generalization based upon limited understanding?
When people make assessments of others based upon their race, their religion, their age, their economic background, their skin color, their choice of relationship/partner/spouse – these judgments show us how SMALL those people are, and how they have been taught to think. Some of these behaviors are in ALL of us, truthfully – but whatever WE choose to think is our OWN problem, nobody else's. I understand that others who think this way can get in the way of our own success in life, but that's LIFE – we must always fight against evil wherever it shows its ugly face, even within our own SELVES. I have every hope that this event taught this person a lesson about kindness, compassion, true candor – which is not the same as rudeness, or being negligently blunt. He is in a position of authority, and he needs to control his boundaries and inhibitions better than that, we have to expect more from adults than to be allowed to behave like an untaught child. That's what a lot of adult people are today, un-taught CHILDREN. Please – GROW UP – have some basic MANNERS, think before you speak. Then teach the rest of us, me included, how you did it! 😀
Most female physicians work long hours then go home and take care of their family’s. This guy probably leaves work and plays golf then goes home to h8s stay at home wife who he thinks does nothing all day 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Facts are Facts , nothing sexist about that, Generally Men work harder and longer hours and produce more results and I'm a black woman from the Bronx NY 😎
3:22 Then private clinics and hospitals would hire only female doctors to save money over male doctors, if all other things are equal.
But of course they aren’t.
I see a dermatologist who divides her office time between two cities. She has appointments as early as 8 am. She is not lazy.
Well, almost everything about what he said was factually true about the long hours, family oriented lives and whatnot. Things he said like “don’t like being rushed” was just stupid. The pay gap also isn’t real and has nothing to do with bias and discrimination, at least definitely not towards women. Kind of a let down that woman on the panel turned out to have her “facts” wrong.
He apologized for what he said. He didn't apologize for believing nor perpetuating that sack of lies and bigotry. 🤔Wonder what he says about our other gendered peoples… or his patients? Hope he gets (some of) the type of treatment❄☃️❄ that bigotry deserves. (-)Minus a bit for the sake of love and peace without regard for his worthiness.😘💛☮
Another whack ass apology. He spoke his truth and that is that. He is a coward for not supporting what he said. It is sad, women work hella hard or even harder as male physicians. So, women of Texas if this is your physician it is time to boycott this idiot and show him you all are a force to reckon with, because this is how he feels about you.
I feel like everybody is playing “hold my beer” right now 🍺
Dr. Douchebag is from Plano, TX. Say no more.
If you substituted the word "women" with the word "working poor", you would get a lot more sympathy from me. I'm sorry to the anesthesiologist who is making 175k, instead of the 200k her male counterpart is making. *tear*. "…anybody who is not paid well, supported and challenged… these people are not going to thrive!" The heart surgeon that is a mother of 4.. how about the mother of 4 that works 2 jobs, maybe one at a nursing home, bathing and feeding your elderly mother and the other, at your house, raising your kids while you're doing the, "important" work. SMH people… please help the HARD WORKING AMERICANS who are suffering in this country… there are SO many people who put in their 40hrs a week and can't even afford the daycare needed in order to have the jobs!!!!
I can't even watch it. I will say that as recently as last week i replaced the MALE DOCTOR, DENTIST, CHIROPRACTOR and MECHANIC because of their incompetence and unethical behavior. So far i have now a female dentist and doctor. I expect to have honest, open and competent care.
He was telling the truth, he didn't need to apologize
No, it is because they take the time to hear your concerns and diagnose more accurately. I’ve had nothing but great female docs over the years.
notice how the chinese woman didn't cite any numbers
The fact is in life even when credentials are equal the person who works more should be paid more
They probably don't…. most women want to raise a family not work 80 hours…more FAKE NEWS
It amazes me that everyone is losing their shit over this man's comments, when in fact no seemed to have a problem about that bogus study that came out a few weeks ago that said women make better doctors than male doctors. WOmen were "You go-girling" and high-fiving each other like crazy over that one. But God forbid you say anything disparaging about their "abilities". Lol…hilarious. And for the record, this man is correct. My family doctor is a female and getting an appointment to see her is like pulling hen's teeth. She is NEVER available and only works 9 to 5, Monday to Friday since she is hell-bent on spending time with her children. I have to book two months in advance just to get in to see her. It's ridiculous.
I make sexist or racist remarks, I get some unexpected pushback and then I make an insincere apology, a classic case study of a conservative white male
Fucking I have had 2 different women doctors i liked who retired
In this day and age!, get over yourself Dude. I would like to say it’s a shame, nothing stopped this man from his verbal diarrhea assault.
What a Moron.
This country is so hostile towards women. It's no wonder birth rates are dropping, we're lucky most women haven't just packed up and moved somewhere else
F***ing dudes, "women don't work as hard as men". These motherf***ers act like they wish women were just like men. Why?!?!?!!!!!!!
The doc is right.. women suck at it.. they should just stay in the kitchen… & take care of babies
Well of course they don't – they already know where the clitoris is….
I prefer female doctors…
He isn't sorry and I CAN NOT BELIEVE the Dallas Medical Journal even printed this!!!!!!!!!!!! It's crap!
Repeating things that Jordan Peterson says may not always be a smart idea.
Generalised comments have no focus and it is a lazy way to start a narrative. In my experience in Nigeria female doctors earn same as male. Most informative is that of all the doctors I have been a mentor to 50% of the females have moved to Europe and the Americas while 0%of the males remain in Nigeria looking for easy money.
His practice probably requires payment up front for services rendered? I wish my wife could do that! She works days, nights, Holidays and weekends to help people not giving it a thought if a patient can pay.
Who is this sexist asshole. My family medical doctor is Mother of three and an administrator as well as working 4 day a week seeing patients. What a jerk. Pat bA very satisfied male patient.
So, where is he lying?, men do actually work harder and are more competitive than women in many profesions
last time checked female doctors and male doctors get paid the same rate per patient or skill. female doctors that get paid for extra hours work is the same as male doctors. it is true, that men tend to put more hours in and take less time off yearly. for this men usually make more yearly. funny how cnn, tell only part of the truth.
He’s not lying
I found most female doctors take nutrition, so that would help patients to need less time.
Maybe thats why female doctors are preferred over men theyre more likely to take the time to listen to the patient.
I'm a man and I can relate better with a male doctor; but I thank God for males and female doctors those that are doing good for us. I make this statement to my family physician and he did got offended ,but I feel more comfortable with a male doctor… equal work equal pay.
He’s probably right. Been like that at every job I’ve ever worked
If it’s a commonly held belief and there’s no secret organization pushing this information, then it’s probably true. How many kids you have and when you last had your period, is irrelevant to the conversation
Hate female docs. I believe it.
Physicians and doctors are paid by the number of patients they see, so why not say directly whether or not they receive fewer clients, why bother talking about the quality, I bet they do!
His comment is completed false. I don't give a flying fucking about family or babies. In fact I hate them! Can't stand them and don't plan on having any either. I care way more about my career than I do anything else.
