What is a Doctor?

Our culture has a tendency to imagine a “good” doctor as somewhat conservative and restrained.

I, personally, am a very conservative doctor, insomuch as my practice is focused on anatomy, systems biology, physiology, and the scientifically validated means of achieving health; like healthy lifestyle. Expressing love for my patients is also an important aspect of my conservative practice.

There are those who would say that I have deviated at times from practicing in a restrained manner. And there is surely some truth to that. Just last week, in fact, I took a little walk on the wild side. I flew to Washington, DC and spent time outside the White House with a placard stating my desire to be President Barack Obama’s chiropractor.

Check out this 41-second video of me at the White House: . I am serious about my desire. Spread the word if you would like to help me.

Surely you can appreciate that it can feel a little risky putting oneself in the public eye in when doing something somewhat unusual.

As chance would have it, I have a current example to share with you of a brilliant and highly-trained medical doctor and researcher, Dr. Kenneth Fine, who is a great doctor, with out being restrained. Here is what might be seen as the conservative Dr. Fine - and . And here is the somewhat unrestrained Dr. Fine, aka Kenny Davin Fine - As far as I am concerned, Kenny, I mean Dr. Fine, rocks!!!

I am grateful to Kenny for being himself. I don’t know if it has been scary for him, but when I get a chance, I will ask.

I have received an invitation to a medical lecture and a rock concert in Dallas next month. Dr. Fine will be lecturing and Kenny and his band will be rockin’. Now I am trying to decide if I would be a fool to fly to Dallas for two great events, or if I would be a fool not to go. What’s your advice?

And finally, what is a doctor?
