So, care to tell me how the healthy and fit patient is supposed to feel walking into a doctors office to find the nurse waddling up to their industrial-strength chair?
And then finding yourself growing impatient as you have to wait an extra 10 minutes for your obese doctor to come wheezing in from his smoke break to talk to you about lifestyle choices?
Funny thing about bias and obesity. It tends to swing both ways. Seems the arrogance of the med industry thinks this is a one-way door.
Of course it goes both ways, and the study makes no claim it doesn't, or does it now?
Btw, I've had a doctor a bit like you describe (not as over the top, but the drift is same), and he was one of my best doctors. He never judged people but did his best to help with whatever was their problem. If he thought the patients life choices may affect how he/she follows the treatment he might have verbally pushed the importance of it, but never did he mistreat at least me.
I wouldn't know, but maybe the fact he knew that he too was only a human might have had something to do with it.
