What is a "Doctor by Oath?"

What is a "Doctor by Oath?"

by Dr Margaret Aranda /A "Doctor by Oath" is not just a 'regular' doctor. Oh, no. / Indeed, let us call her the "Doctor By Oath", or DBO (singular, in possession form). Allow me to introduce this term. A DBO is an endangered species, an entity unto...

Dale Masters: all great points, my sweet. So great to have these conversations here with you! ...and physics, too? lol. And yes, lots of content in your concise statement, and I do believe that doctors on an Indian reservation will also learn the true meaning of the word, "grateful," for the patients are amazingly humble and it is something to behold. And just as a historical note, while on an Indian reservation outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma, I was a medical student rotating on the Ob/Gyn maternity floor. I delivered the baby of a woman whose last name was "Tulsa" and when I asked, she confirmed that the city was named after her great-great-great grandfather, a tribal Chief. Ahh....such richness.

Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD Those who are not DBOs do more harm than good. I believe the suffix "MD [DBO]" should be permitted, as it would allow patients to choose a REAL doctor. (I also believe that misuse of the term should result in a prison sentence, but you and I both know that the probablity of that happening exists in the region of negative numbers.) I also think that every doctor should be required to spend a year at an Indian reservation, learning the true meaning of the word "healer".
