This is true.
I've had negative experiences with doctors here, but I'm not at all sure that similar incompetence (the case I'm thinking of was rather more clearly incompetence but rather more complex to describe, so I havn't got around to it yet) couldn't happen in the UK NHS.
OTOH my impression is that access to resources (eg NMRI, bone scan) here has been MUCH better than it would have been in the UK.
I think the problem I percieve is to do with the "art rather than science" nature of the medical profession.
This is no doubt a comforting mantra for practitioners, but there's a risk that, along with time and resource pressures, it gets used as an excuse for doing a half-assed job of diagnosis.
There MIGHT be a cultural amplification of this unscientific approach, since the culture generally doesn't value logic or evidence-based conclusions.

Hope your blue ear returns to a more attractive colour soon.
