Hey Fatso!

Dr. Terry M. Bennett didn't hold back when he told a patient that she was too fat and she needed to lose weight. She filed a complaint and ultimately the New Hampshire Attorney General's Administrative Prosecution Unit recommended the doctor take an "education course" and apologize. The doctor declined, saying he was just telling the truth. This has the attention of the medical community. Can the government regulate how pleasant a doctor is when delivering sound medical advice?
