"Do doctors have an obligation to treat someone?" - Mitch Harris

Night Talk 15/01/2018

Mitch Harris is back for Night Talk in 2018! Tonight (Monday 15th January 2018):
Mitch is asking about the ethics of doctors and dentists, after an incident he had during the summer break in December.

Mitch arrived at the doctors ten minutes before the clinic was closing (4:50pm) with terrible pain in his mouth, and wanted some pain relief. The receptionist told him there was nothing she could do for him, and told him to "go to the hospital after 7pm".

Do you think this is fair? Do you believe the receptionist acted in poor faith? Should she have checked with the doctor before telling him to leave?

Night Talk with Mitch Harris, 8pm - 12am Monday-Thursday nights on RadioLIVE and streaming live to the rova app on Android and iPhone.
