Yup, its a practice, and people are human & can be distracted.

I think its great that he has survived that long, I hope to also, but with 
a bit of sugar that could be a problem.

When a malpractice situation came up with me many years ago, when I had 
recovered sufficiently I went back and gave the doc his choice, that of 
dealing with me when I'm pissed and not calling the police, or a 
malpractice suite (but I would have had to stand in line to collect that, 
he eventually lost several).  He took me.  I'll let your imagination fill 
in the blanks.  He eventually 'retired' 20 years early.
