Doctor disciplined with patients defending his actions

Patients are defending a direct doctor who is being reviewed by the Medical Board after a patient took offence to his calling her fat in order to encourage her to lose weight. The doctor has apologized personally and publicly to the patient, and is claiming that his civil rights have been voided by the government. He is calling for an open hearing on the matter, especially considering allegations have been made about numerous members of the Medical Board.
