    Most people will forget, but I'm willing to bet the people who visit his office won't.

    Chances are that if he takes that sign down, eventually, the long term harm to his bottom line is negligible.

    Really though, these type of stories make for good news ratings and not much else.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    This strikes me as similar to the pharmacists who refuse to dispense birth control.
    Completely different issue, firstly. In this case, I do not believe the doctor is actually saying he would refuse treatment. Secondly, and I'm not sure of this, I believe that it is legal for a pharmacist to do that as long as he gives a referral to someone who WILL fill the prescription.

    It won't any more than Obama already has.

    I'm glad he's standing up for his rights. It'll be interesting if other doctors join him; and if they do, whether or not Obama steps in to mandate who the doctors must provide care for.

    Yeah right. That'll hold up in court.

    Secondly, and I'm not sure of this, I believe that it is legal for a pharmacist to do that as long as he gives a referral to someone who WILL fill the prescription.
    I'm not sure about that either. Depends on the state. And I do believe its unethical though. If you can't do your job, find another one.

    How exactly has Obama hurt his practice?

    Ahhh... THIS is the hysterics that the right is talking about. Please, hazlnut, he's not forcing anything. He's making a political statement in relation to his practice. Poor professionalism and certainly a poor business practice in my opinion, but well within his rights. A patient then has the choice to remain, or not.

    And there is nothing that he is doing that should cause him to have his licence revoked.

    Years ago, I went to a doctor, who, while examing me, said, "So what are your plans this weekend?" I thought it was a strange question, but when I started to answer the question, he said, "I was asking my nurse." I thought it was unprofessional. I never went back, and have specifically informed my friends that I would not recommend him when asked for a referral. People talk.

    In all honesty, all he is doing is hurting his own practice. As Captain said, poor business tactic but not illegal.
