Some Pikeville doctors are offended after they say a television host degraded them on national television.
Doctor Michael Murphy, an osteopathic doctor and professor at Pikeville College says a comment on the June 22nd edition of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" on MSNBC shocked him. Keith Olbermann was analyzing Paris Hilton's doctor, who is also a D.O. rather than an M.D. and that's when Murphy says his entire profession was damaged.
"The comments essentially said that the physician that was caring for Paris Hilton was not a real doctor, not an M.D. but an osteopath. I found that relatively insulting because there's only two complete physicians in the U.S., an M.D. and osteopathic physicians," Murphy said.
Doctor Murphy, along with several other doctors, sent a letter to Mr. Olbermann asking him to correct the information on national television.
We were unable to talk to anyone with the show about the comments.
