There are many times one should ignore the crowds. This is one of them: when you are desperate, and you need healing. When there are those who demand you do things their way, but that is not going to lead to a cure or salvation.

The road is broad that leads to perdition, and the crowds are on it. Call out to Christ instead, for the crowds are more blind than those without sight.

Matthew 20:29-34

29 As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed Him. 30 And two blind men sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried out, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 31 The crowd sternly told them to be quiet, but they cried out all the more, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” 32 And Jesus stopped and called them, and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” 33 They *said to Him, “Lord, we want our eyes to be opened.” 34 Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes; and immediately they regained their sight and followed Him.
