    Doctor tells Obama supporters: Go elsewhere for health care



    MOUNT DORA A doctor who considers the national health-care overhaul to be bad medicine for the country posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Barack Obama to seek care "elsewhere."

    "I'm not turning anybody away that would be unethical," Dr. Jack Cassell, 56, a Mount Dora urologist and a registered Republican opposed to the health plan, told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it."

    The sign reads: "If you voted for Obama seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now, not in four years."

    Estella Chatman, 67, of Eustis, whose daughter snapped a photo of the typewritten sign, sent the picture to U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, the Orlando Democrat who riled Republicans last year when he characterized the GOP's idea of health care as, "If you get sick, America Die quickly."

    Chatman said she heard about the sign from a friend referred to Cassell after his physician recently died. She said her friend did not want to speak to a reporter but was dismayed by Cassell's sign.

    "He's going to find another doctor," she said.

    Now that's a smart Doc! I like his attitude.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Saw this on the news last night. Priceless!!

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    What a scumbug. He swore an oath, and yet he puts pathetic partisan politics above his profession. The only saving grace is that he is screwing himself by losing out on reasonable customers. He is more than welcome to bash Obama all he likes, but it is shameful to go so far.

    Considering he says he won' REFUSE anyone, your rhetoric merely drips with ignorance and hate.

    He is using his God Given, constitutionally guaranteed right to Free Speech and Freedom of Association. The shameful one here, is you.

    Sounds like this Urologist here has the balls (no pun intended) to stick up for what he believes in; even if the sign is temporary, it does send a signal. Not all the fake white jackets standing behing Obama as camera props are happy and some are making themselves known.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Hmmm in one breath he says go else where in another he says he won't refuse service. The man is speaking out of both sides of his mouth

    Following the Obama method apparently.

    I hope his practice suffers as a result of his immature and unprofessional behavior. I'd be happy to go elsewhere. Anyone who would put politics over someone's heath isn't worthy of my business.

    And those of you supporting his sign, shame on you.

    Gladly. And if you were a patient of his and went somewhere else, it sounds like a win/win from the Dr's. perspective.
