A Florida man who had been referred to specialist Dr. Jack Cassell found this sign on the doctor’s office door: “If you voted for Obama, seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now, not in four years.”
At first, he thought it was a joke, but the receptionist assured the man, who did not want to be identified, that it was not a joke.
Now, U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., is filing a formal complaint with the Florida Department of Health and the Florida Medical Board.
“A doctor takes an oath to help improve the health of patients, not just Republican patients or Democratic patients or conservatives or liberals,” Grayson told ABCNews.com. “They take an oath to cure people.”
“I think it’s disgusting,” he said. “I know that most people go into health care because they want to help sick people. They don’t have some political agenda. I think it’s outrageous that someone would try to press his political agenda, and deny people health care because of it.”
