Is it ok for a doctor to turn a patient away because that patient is obese? A Massachusetts doctor has a policy of not treating any patient over 200 pounds. This is legal, but is it right? Look around you and you will see that this is an obese nation. What would happen if more doctors adopted this policy? Would the obese become slim or would they simply not seek medical attention. Watch the link and share your thoughts.
