I think you are right.


I dunno Liz. There isn't much cultural diversity within our own country on big issues, we're all pretty similar when it comes to how you interact with doctors for example. However, cultural differences make it difficult for some patients to get proper health care, and therefore doctors should give a shit.

Furthermore, it is not acceptable for a doctor to say "I'm not going to give you the best health care you deserve because I am too lazy and if you don't like it, you can go elsewhere". As with teachers and students, there is a large power differential involved, and choice is (in practice) limited.

Honestly, this quote makes Doc Surg out to be a pretty poor doctor. I wouldn't go to his/her practice despite my ability to communicate well, because s/he sounds like a very poor listener.
