If you combine D.O. and M.D. it spells dodm. I just wanted to say that, so people would check out this thread. I do want to know something, however, why did YOU CHOOSE MD OVER DO? This is not meant to be a power struggle debate...I simply want to know why M.D. over D.O. Was it the salary? Shouldn't be because M.D. and D.O. have parallel salaries if in the same specialty, or if you're a better doctor. Was it the research? Was it the prestige? I just want to get a sense of why you chose one degree over the other--IM NOT trying to talk down to anyone, I just want to a get a feel for why you chose the medical school you did. Please answer respectfully.
