SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Not sure why these forums have selected allopathic to mean " M.D. physician." This term was created by Samuel Hahnemann. I am an older physician. This term, allopathic represents to me, a term used by individuals from non-conventional practices. I would have created two physician forums: D.O. and M.D. Perhaps out of date adjectives should remain in the vocabulary of quacks. But, maybe now, the term quack is also "politically incorrect."
