Dr Bruce Cowan announced that he is "an old fashioned authoritarian doctor", related in a defensive manner,made statements that he perversely thinks wanting to have a really good doctor, affiliated with an excellent hospital or medical school strikes him as incomprehensible and/or unjustifiable...huh?He was disparaging toward me for having had specialists who are considered outstanding in their fields.This is the 21st century. Who goes to an internist expecting him/her to be as qualified in every subspecialty as an actual specialist, and who would agree to a doctor/patient relationship that divests the patient of all reasoning capacities, presuming ignorance and encouraging totalitarian dependence on a suposedly all-knowing omniscient Godlike paternalistic figure? He was Marcus Welby without the interest or compassion. A relic. He thinks a barium enema is a realistic option instead of a colonoscopy.If you want to behave like a 5-year-old child to his "authoritarian" medical persona, this is the doc for you.
