Did you guys read the articles about that doctor in Massachusetts who refused a patient because she weighed over 200 pounds? I was floored. She (the doctor) said that some of her staff got hurt taking care of obese patients in the past so now she will not take her as a patient.
What do you guys think?
I think there are some patients that doctors should consider refusing: like the frequent flyers with "chest pain" with no medical etiology who somehow needs 4mg dilaudid every 2 hours. I mean, go get high the old fashion way- at the corner street after handing $5 to a shady character.
But refusing an obese person treatment?
