sadly, many doctors have the mentality of a mechanic, only they deal with the customer's body rather than their car.<quoted text>Your story reminded me of this...
" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Reimer&quo... ;
Having a medical degree is no guarantee that a doctor is sane OR normal in any way. Poor David was doomed after having been a guinea pig for one maniacal doctor after another.
therefore, i don't trust a dr with my body anymore than i do a mechanic with my car. i.e., do i tell a mechanic to do whatever they think my car needs? NO - we'd all be broke if we did that and our cars wouldn't be any better off; sometimes worse....:-)
