Pediatrician with a God Complex Refuses to Treat Unvaccinated Children

•, by: Daisy Luther
Wikipedia defines a “god complex” as
“an unshakable belief characterized by consistently inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility. A person with a god complex may refuse to admit the possibility of their error or failure, even in the face of complex or intractable problems or difficult or impossible tasks, or may regard their personal opinions as unquestionably correct.”  
Many parents can find a living, breathing example of a person suffering from a “god complex” as close as the family pediatrician’s office.
One such example is the anonymous pediatrician who wrote this essay, which was published by The Daily Beast.
I always ask if the children are vaccinated, or if the parents intend to vaccinate once the child is born. If the answer is no, I politely and respectfully tell them we won’t be the right fit. We don’t accept patients whose parents won’t vaccinate them.
