    MOUNT DORA — A doctor who considers the national health-care overhaul to be bad medicine for the country posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Barack Obama to seek care "elsewhere."

    The sign reads: "If you voted for Obama … seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now, not in four years."



    I love stories like this :)

    I think his patients better watch what they say to him.

    He may Hurt someone who says the wrong thing

    Since he's practicing in a GOP dominated county, I think it's just an ad campaign to increase his business. Wingnuts will go to him now in droves.

    While I personally wouldn't do what he did, I support his being able to do so.

    Good for him.

    Freedom speech and an attempt at freedom of association. The doctor can't refuse care if the patient persists in trying to see him. But his sign encourages such patents to look elsewhere.

    It's his right to free speech.

    You are correct. He has already said that he won't refuse treatment to anyone, but that some might go somewhere else based on the sign.

    Good for him. He may lose money and patients but at least he is putting his money (or lackthereof) where his mouth and opinions are.

    He is a private doctor with a private business and he has the right to accept or refuse any patient he chooses to. He may lose some insurance or medicare money but its still his right to do this.

    We dont live in obamacare land yet, the bill isn't implimented or enforced yet.
