QOTD: "...doctors will be obligated — that’s right, obligated — to talk to you about things you may have no interest or need to talk about.

You may just want to have a pap smear or check your cholesterol. However, I am now mandated by the government to talk to you about your weight, exercise, family life, smoking, sexual abuse(!), and even to ask if you wear seat belts. And I am mandated to record your answers." --Dr. Peter Weiss

A suggested response to your doctor on those intrusive questions: "Doc, are you writing all this down? 'Cause I want to be sure that whoever's reviewing this 'confidential doctor-patient conversation' understands EXACTLY what I'm trying to say here. ALL THAT SH-- IS NONE OF MY GOVERNMENT'S GO- DA-- FU----- BUSINESS. You wrote it down exactly as I spoke it, right? Thank you, and no offense intended, doc..."

By the way, a couple I know (they recently changed doctors) told me that another question they were asked is "Are there any guns in the house?" Not sure if that was the new doc's own initiative, or if it's part of the mandatory probing that's replaced the quaint notion of "doctor-patient confidentiality".
