Doctors Who Lie!

First I read about it at shrink rap: Is It Malpractice To Lie?

Then they accused Dr. Carlat of admitting to it on the air: Carlat on NPR's "Fresh Air"

Reminds me of a retired surgeon who was still practicing when surgeons started using laser tools for various procedures. He said patients started asking him whether he would use laser tools for their procedure. He said he would look them in the eye and say, "Of course."

Whether he intended to use laser or not.
