Naturopathic Doctor Loves It!

After doing the Ontario Prescribing Course with James I got hooked on his podcast. I find his approach balanced and so helpful in empowering patient choice and understanding in my practice.

Wonderful podcast/New question

Thank you for all of the work that you do to provide practical, useful information on relevant topics. I apologize if this has already been done as I have not been a listener for a particularly long time, but I wonder if you have given any consideration to doing an episode or a series of episodes on debunking common anti-vaccination arguments/myths and what an appropriate response might be to some of these?

Comedy vs Respectfulness

Your podcasts are interesting and I applaud your efforts to address some of theses issues. Having been an RN for 43 years and having worked with many doctors over the course of my career, I want to encourage you younger folks to remember that we are here to serve patients in the most loving supportive way we can. We are their helpers not their judges. The number of occasions you use inappropriate flippant humour, especially about patients, tells me your respect level and your loving kindness for them needs a little work. I cannot respect a doctor that talks nicely to a patient and then leaves the room to makes flippant disrespectful comments outside the room or on a podcast. Please think before you decide to allow these comments out of the doors of your lips. Medicine is serious business not comedy. Patients are special human beings with problems who need your loving kindness not your disrespect. Note that the word sarcasm comes from the Greek work meaning ‘to tear flesh’ and that is how your comments and sarcastic laughter strikes me. Your mothers taught you better did they not?
