    It is often the patients who demand antibiotics, after taking the time to explain the difference between a virus and a bacteria they say, "That's all fine, but how can I get better without a pill?" Doctors often receive bad ratings for practicing good medicine by refusing antibiotics: "I don't know why I wasted the time and money to see a doctor, they didn't do anything."
