Here is a link to an article an video that I read and watched yesterday:
This article and video is awesome! I had a similar incident with my doctor and I decided to find a new doctor! I think that doctors should not judge a patient by their weight! I think they need to find out about their patients. Get to know why they are overweight, and ask about their lifestyles. Too many doctors just ASSUME that their obese patients don't eat healthy or exercise! They don't take the time to ask questions! It makes me so mad! I won't put up with a doctor that has a "fat" bias!
I look for a doctor who will ask questions and actually "listen" to me when I give answers!I am sure that there are many obese and overweight people out there who have gained the weight due to health issues, not the other way around!This article gave me hope that maybe the medical community is changing and doctors will pay attention to their obese patients, have compassion and try to help them without judgement!
