Shame and the Good Doctor

I do not know who this Dr. Rob is, but Francesca hearts him!

(Thanks to Dr. Nic for the link.)

P.S. Most of the comments to Dr. Rob’s post are fat-friendly, except those from a troll who claims to be an MD but really probably isn’t at all. Just pooh-pooh him and focus on the fascinating discussion about Cushing’s disease.

    I wish this was my doctor. I actively avoid going to the doctor to take care of health issues because I want to avoid the chewing out that I always get about my weight.

    Kudos to Dr. Rob for realizing that shaming is a pointless exercise (and that jeebus for that!). In contrast, these travel site readers believe by a margin of 2:1 that overweight folks deserve to be humiliated. http://www.smartertravel.com/blogs/today-in-travel/most-smartertravel-readers-favor-making-obese-flyers-buy-two-seats.html?id=2648094.
