Now, doctors aren't automatically exempt from jury duty, but I can't imagine the attorney who would want one on the jury.
Just imagine how much this is costing him. Not just money, but you have to believe he is losing patients (or is that patience?) who don't like being rescheduled.
No wonder people don't want to be witnesses. The old story about someone being shot six times in center field during Game 7 in Yankee Stadium and no one saw a thing!
In the ER, a lot of docs try to avoid the assault/rape patients because we don't want to be jerked around like DocSurg is now.
