Maybe it was the billboard that had a picture of a woman in a white coat saying that this “doctor does house calls” (she had a doctorate in nursing)? Maybe it was all those chiropractors offering services they are not qualified to give? Who knows? But finally the AMA is trying to fight back. We all should. As the linked article said:
Nonphysicians who deliberately or passively allow patients to believe they are physicians when they really aren’t are abusing that well-earned trust and impugning the good work they and their colleagues are capable of doing.
Yes! We need to push back on those who are parasitically living off our reputation because, well, it’s wrong! Unless of course you are Dr. Rick Marshall from Land of the Lost. Then it would be okay.
