The Consult Guys - Dressed to Kill? Can Neckties Spread Infection?

This seem to be ridiculous to me. I think some of the attorneys are behind this who give advertisement with no fee guaranteed and we the physicians fall prey to this kind of propiganda. Tomorrow if some one comes up with the idea of spreading infection through glasses, cell phone , white coats, shoes , shirts . Please do not ban those.We cannot make fun saying that wearing a nonprofessional attire (shirt in the last scene )that you are still my physician. Look at patient satisfaction survey (80%).
