When Doctors DisagreeCreated by:
Doctors frequently have different opinions regarding disease management. This is one of the common problems that is being encountered in practice. I saw this facebook post of a hematologist who cleared a patient for surgery despite having prolonged bleeding time. The attending surgeon refused to operate unless the bleeding time is corrected and insists on having transfusion. The hematologist claims that there is no indication to transfuse. Do you commonly see this in practice? If you were the hematologist, how would you have reacted to the surgeon's decision?
