Over the past week I have now encountered 3 seperate people who stopped taking all their cardiac, diabetic and other essential medications and of course became symptomatic as a result. When I asked why they did this, all three told me that they were advised by their lawyers to stop taking the pills. So my question: when did a JD entitle you to practice medicine. I must be going the wrong route, why go to medical school to practice medicine when I could easily get into law school . Oh well. Anyone else still working in the field or in the ER's come across similar instances?
