19. I spoke with my friend this morning
*This is not medical advise - only opinion*

I spoke with my friend this morning.

She felt all of the questions were valid and important.

They were all questions that she would (and does) ask her own patients.

Her office does not make patients fill out a form of this type.

She did not see a real problem with having questionnaires of this type, however.

When I mentioned some of the concerns brought up on this board re: pre-screening, morality issues, etc. she asked, "who would do that?

Good doctors are too busy treating patients to waste their time doing morality checks. (Good doctors are too busy treating patients to know what's going on in the real world. I love my friend dearly but I'm not sure which is the case.)

She did not feel that was something you needed to worry about, however, she said if you are uncomfortable with any questions, leave those blank and DISCUSS THEM WITH YOUR DOCTOR IN PERSON.

I'm sorry I don't have more to offer.
