Doctor wouldn't lose their license over this, you Ambulance Chaser. And unless you already have a life threatening illness, you're going to have a breakdown in the office like this? Even if you have crippling anxiety, which believe me I know all about, this sounds like the reaction of a hypochondriac. Was this professional behaviour? No, apparently not in this case. Although, I'm sure the doctor didn't expect you to react the way you did. They very likely thought they could, though. Instead of going through litigation and in the long run raising the rates for everyone due to increased malpractice insurance; leave this doctor's practice and find another one that suits you better. I wouldn't think that they'll get much more than a slap on the wrist, so I wouldn't hold my breath about getting rich from closing this practice.

I wonder if there is a word for what he is doing. Oh right. Joking. Sure he may have let it go to far. But he was still joking.

He's allowed to say whatever he wants. And then the patient is just as allowed to fire his obnoxious ass for acting so unprofessionally. I make jokes with my patients when the time is right. But NEVER about death.

27, that's like me jokingly attempting to push someone down a flight of stairs and then exclaiming "it was just a prank!" when they get pissed off at me for even jokingly doing something like that. It doesn't negate the fact that it was super inappropriate and potentially harmful to the recipient of my "prank". I may not have intended to truly hurt them, but that's still what happened.

86, need me to write you a step by step guide? While I'm doing that, I suggest you go back to elementary school to work on your reading comprehension, as it's clearly lacking.

Well if you can laugh at your own impending mortality, hat's off to you sir. If someone told me I was dying the last thing I would want to do is laugh about it

Having health issues and having been around doctors my entire life I agree that I like a doctor with a sense of humour, although yes, this doctor took it way too far. About 2/3 of the doctors I've met, and I've met a lot, have no bedside manner. I get that it's rough dealing with sick people day in and day out, and their schedules are insanely busy, but anyone having to go to the doctor doesn't want to be there and being nice, or making jokes, doesn't hurt.
