This doctor shouldn’t even call himself a doctor. Where did you grow up? How do you think? How do you think it’s okay to judge “professionalism” the way you did in your journal article about social media usage and professionalism. We live in 2020. A doctor can enjoy a drink and wear a fun Halloween costume and still be a strong and successful doctor. Educate yourself and assimilate to the times we are living in now. I’m utterly disappointed. Be better!
