Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Your family doctor is accused of participating in a doping scheme for professional athletes.

Do you keep him/her as your primary care provider?

Does it affect your opinion of him/her?

Discuss.

Depends on how strongly you believe in the presumption of innocence.

Would he still be able to practice if he's found guilty? Cause then you might not have a choice.

Is this really any different than if they got busted for anything else? DWI/DUI, theft, tax evasion, peeping tom.......

Family doctors are a dime a dozen. This would be a tougher question if it was about a specialist.
