Hi Everyone, I am going to be a fourth generation osteopath in my family. My great-great grandfather was a student of AT Still's. Family legend has it that A.T. Still stole the idea of lymphatics from him. Anyway back to the point at hand, my dad is a Family Practitioner having two offices in Western PA and Eastern Ohio. He works only with DO's and refers only to DO's. He is married to a DO, my mom. And has 2 DO sisters and one DO brother; my aunts and unlce. His life is literally all about DO's, the AOA, the NBOME and the JAOA. Our dog is named Still, our cat Sutherland and our gold fish Kirksville. Anyway, recently I started dating a girl who is second year at the University of Pittsburgh. I told him that she is a physician. He said, "great, let's see her treat a right on right sacral shear." When I told him she doesn't use her hands to treat, nor has she ever learned to use her hands, he was appalled and almost threw me out of the house after storming away from the dinner table in disgust. Please help me. My love life, family life and osteopathic life are in turmoil. How can I explain to my dad that MD's are doctors too? Thanks everyone.
