Medical lawsuits are really difficult for doctors. If they get it involved in one it usually means their insurance premium goes up to such a level it drastically increases their salaries. And by keeping pasients with healthier weight it means it reduces their chances of getting sued. I think doctors are just human who have student loans to pay, mortages, children to support and they want to try to secure themselves against lawsuits.
I read one case where one doctor after being unlawfully sued had to pay 32 000 a year in insurance!!! So I try to see it from their side, which makes them look less 'evil'. Guys, don't take it as a personal offense that doctors want to secure themselves against lawsuits, if you were a doctor most of your would take the same precaution. I certainly would.
