The familiar disappointment in the doctor who bypasses an examination and just tells you to lose weight.

As an RN I can confirm this to be true. Every health problem is dismissed as, “Well, it’s because you’re fat,” whether true or not, and will not be addressed. If you’re female, then every health complaint that can’t be verified immediately by x-ray or abnormal lab value is, “Well, you must be depressed.” That is how women end up in the morgue, and it has disgusted me for over 20 years in health care.
