Beware Fat Man

Dr Consults with Federal Obamacare for Direction Last week, a friend of mine went to see a doctor at Saint James Hospital. Without getting into the specifics of why he was there, I will tell his story. The man is very tall, perhaps six foot four or taller. He is a big guy. He weighs in at two-ninety or more. When I look at him he doesn’t appear to be obese, but he is a big guy. 

To make this story very short, his doctor, a black lady, told him he was too fat to treat. She told him to go find another doctor. Is this a case of racial discrimination, or obesity discrimination? Clearly it is a violation of the Hippocratic oath. I thought doctors were supposed to do no harm in their treatment. This doctor clearly caused mental stress with her non-treatment.  

I know the latest rant on the news is about obesity in America, but is this the way obese people are going to be treated? If they are, I think the doctors of America will go onto the list of poverty stricken because their income comes from the obese.  Yes, there are lots of skinny people who are sick with disease, but I bet they are out numbered.

Be prepared to file discrimination suits against your family doctor if this attitude prevails.

Nothing is impossible (at least that does not violate the laws of physics). When you can..violate the laws of physics!
