I work in healthcare, I have regular interaction with many doctors and they are not created equal. What do you call a doctor that graduated last in his class? Doctor.
I'm lucky my PCP is a close friend of the family and he pretty much lets me do what I want, he knows how much effort and research I put into things. I mostly keep him up to date with my efforts because I only have one kidney and we want to make sure no problems arise from that. So far my kidney functions are fine.
