Obama’s Ex-Doctor Crosses the Line May 13, 2012Posted by geoff in News.
Human Events talks about Edward Klein’s interview with Obama’s former doctor:
In a revealing new book, The Amateur, author Edward Klein interviews President Barack Obama’s physician, Dr. David Scheiner, MD, who blasts the president’s health care plan and says that President Obama has an “academic detachment” that he could never break through.
“I think there is too much of the University of Chicago in him. By which I mean he’s academic, lacks passion and feeling, and doesn’t have the sense of humanity that I expected.”
Ummmm…. isn’t there supposed to be some sort of confidentiality between doctor and patient? Like where you can speak freely with your doctor and not feel like he’s going to broadcast your personal traits all over the world? I know this isn’t medical information, but still.
Ironically, the article then says:
The point that Scheiner was trying to make is that President Obama lacks the ability to understand the critical role of the doctor to patient interaction just as he fails to connect to people personally.
Yeah, well, a key part of that doctor to patient interaction is trust. It’s easy to see why the President might not appreciate that interaction as much as he would have if his former personal physician wasn’t trying to stab him in the back.
There are plenty of reasons that this President should never again hold public office at any level. We don’t need to stoop this low.
