This article really ticked me off. First of all, this type of care happened in a country with Socialized Medicine!! If Obama care gets implemented is this the kind of treatment we can expect? Although... in my experience with my own mother, doctor's don't really give a rip when they give patients bad news. They were always walking in and telling my mother bad stuff about her health even when I put a note on the chart requesting to be consulted first! That never mattered apparently because they told her she had ovarian cancer without me or my sister there. This was AFTER her oncologist told me he thought she had a little dementia! So go figure. It still angers me when I think back on it.
