One thing I'm keeping an eye on is the ARod lawsuit. MLB could be in a world of shit for this.
    I think a Dr. would have his license revoked for violating the confidentiality statutes (but don't quote me on that).

    The punitive repercussions for breaching confidentiality must be severe. I know they are in Law and Finance.

    They are. Violations of HIPAA Security and Privacy Rules and The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) of 2009 can levy fines of up to 1.5 million, jail time, termination and license revocation..etc. There was an ER doctor somewhere out east that posted stuff on Facebook about patients. She never used any names or any kind of identifying information but it didn't matter. 250k fine and loss of license for some amount of time, I don't believe it was permanent but it was awhile.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    If she had used names it would have been permanent I bet.

    In France, a visit to your family doctor is completely free.

    In the US, there's apparently a trend growing: poor people seem more and more reluctant to make a visit to their doctor. Can you confirm it?

    Well, I know that some people grow wary of vaccines for reasons that are somewhere between the personal and religious range. Perhaps they are fatalistic about the fact that new strains of viruses and diseases come out every year, so they would rather not support a biological arms race that lasts indefinitely. There's also the fact that socialised healthcare is in the process of being passed, so some people who don't want to pay for their neighbors' health are literally packing their bags and moving. I want to say that, if there's a trend involving poor people, it also correlates with their level of education.

    Yes. I only choose to go if it's categorically required.

    Most doctors do/have:

    - Questioned my morals
    - Acted in way grossly violating their ethics/standards
    - Lecture me as if they're my mother or father
    - Speak to me rudely and dismissively

    Now, I never question others' morals (though I prevent my friend from being a vegetarian.. ), I don't violate my professional ethical standards (as a campus security administrator, I waive staff who provide sexual favours in exchange for free access to VSS records anytime they want...), and I have nor want any children, and am respectful to many. So much for the Golden Rule, eh?

    I think doctors like to scold and mistreat people based on their own whim, but then somebody will say I'm being "naive" haha.. If I went to a doctor and said "I like to drink a lot" they'd say "don't do that, it's not 'moral'" yet if another goes s/he would say "well it's not advisable since it can lead to liver problems, hypertension and even some forms of cancer". lol..

    Ya I haven't been to the doctor or hospital in 11 years....Last time I went to a doctors office was because I was lifting weights and heard a pop in my head followed by a severely bad headache that would come back every time I lifted something heavy or took a dump etc..... He told me a probably had an aneurism and gave me my money back and told me to go to the ER which cost me 2500.00 (no insurance)_ Boy was I pissed when it was just a pinched nerve Now I figure if meant to die I will!
