While we're on the subject of questioning doctors for their medical advice (and experts in general), let me share a fun story.


As a kid, I had a predisposition to tonsilitis and strep throat. I had both fairly frequently.

When I was in sixth grade, I felt sick and my throat hurt. I knew immediately it was strep throat. I went to my doctor and he took a look, took my temp and saw no fever, and decided I was fine. I said I knew it was strep, and he should do a strep culture.

He humored me. Two days later, he called back saying the culture came back most definitely positive, and prescribed me the appropriate medicine.

I WAS ELEVEN YEARS OLD AND I WAS RIGHT WHEN THE MEDICAL EXPERT WAS WRONG.


So no, Holmgren's "expertise and inside information" doesn't make him beyond questioning.
