I live in Canada, where physicians are MDs. DOs in Canada are not physicians. But thank you for the clarification.
In my opinion, DOs are even better trained than MDs if you know their training. They do the same schooling as an MD and then on top of that do extra training in musculoskeletal, osteokinematics, etc etc and have way more skills in treating patients than MDs. This guy is also an ER physician, which requires even more training to be in the ER.
Thank you Matt, very well articulated.
Sorry you lost me when you said he is a physician but not an MD. As far as I recall from the English language, a physician IS an MD. The dictionary seems to confirm my memory.
