It Hurts When I Do That...Then Don't Do That

Just when you think things couldn't get more ridiculous...

As doctors warn more patients that they should lose weight, the advice has backfired on one doctor with a woman filing a complaint with the state saying he was hurtful, not helpful.

Her complaint, filed about a year ago, was investigated by a panel of the New Hampshire Board of Medicine, which recommended that Dr. Bennett be sent a confidential letter of concern. The board rejected the suggestion and asked the attorney general's office to investigate.

Bennett rejected that office's proposal that he attend a medical education course and acknowledge that he made a mistake.

Envision it.

Doctor: You need to lose weight, you're too fat.

Fat Woman: Well, I want another opinion.

Doctor: OK, you're stupid too.

People who don't want honest answers shouldn't solicit opinions and advice. They should join the lunatic left and frivol away their existence humming Kumbaya in politically correct fantasy towers, while the rest of us deal with the grim realities of life.

...and she'll pay for the shrink with the settlement from the Dr.'s insurance company, no doubt.
