You've obviously never encountered a lousy doctor or a pill-pusher. I had to argue with a doc who wanted to give me an antibiotic prescription for what he diagnosed as a viral infection. Even a marginally educated person should know that antibiotics won't touch a viral infection, just bacterial ones. I told him I wouldn't take it since I had a viral infection, I'd just go home and feel lousy for a few days. He called in the prescription anyway so I didn't fill it.
And doctors are not gods. Yeah, it IS their job to know more than us, but there are just as many lousy, dishonest, or plain stupid doctors as there are car mechanics, lawyers, tax attorneys, etc. It is YOUR job to question them if something doesn't seem right. You are are you only advocate and it's your responsibility to take care of yourself first and foremost.
Right on, dude. From a distance I deal with doctors all day and they run the gambit. As for some on this thread, some have been the most hypocritical, lying pieces of shit on record. Some of you owe me an apology and I will be coming to collect. I have refused service to frauds and assholes they at least had to do something. Not just refuse to buy whatever I was selling. Let's see what we have established here, a healthcare provider can deny service because they are having a crisis of conscience? Really, that is a new one. Since when? Some of you have been on record to the contrary. Hey guys, Civil rights laws mean nothing, just ask for someone's shot records and when they don't have them on hand, because they are not livestock or housepets, you can kick them out of your place of business (which is what a doctor's office is) and call them filthy monkeys and drop a dime to social services. DBTrek and Zeppy said it's ok!!
