no, providing the patient is told the risk, is willing to take it anyway, and is signing the proper legal discharge papers.

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, who am I for? And if not now, when? ETHICS OF THE FATHERS

But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
DEUTERONOMY 4:29

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. JEREMIAH 29:13

I agree, only if there is a risk to a patient.

When there is a risk to the patient, then yes. With so many people that sue. the dr. must protect him/herself. A doctor in our area just got sued for $74 million dollars for really something that seemed out of his control. He made a decision he thought was for the best, then was sued.

in case of emergency no but a lot of doctors worldwide for transplant receipiants are denying the transplant because a lot of patients are still doing the old habit which caused them to need a transplant in the first place. same thing with knee and hip replacements, are lot are not listening to the doctors and loosing the weight so that the replacments will work properly. also patients who do excessive plastic surgery, there should be a point where enough is enough, UNLESS it was the result of an accident or birth defect

Each circumstance is so different and unless it is life threatening, work with the patient one on one.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

No doctor wants to lose a patient on the surgery table. And with weight or other physical problems, there is far more of a chance of complications. They should advise the patient to lose prior to the surgery.

it has to do with the fact that there r possibilities of more complications
