Not all doctors are created equal

However, it’s worth considering the doctors quoted in this matter. An oncologist contacted by a British paper was circumspect about Jobs’ prognosis — he only reiterated the obvious, that if Jobs is photographed leaving a treatment center it is reasonable to assume he may be receiving treatment (although of course it could be a follow-up visit).

The two physicians quoted in the source story, however, don’t really follow a model of prudent restraint — both deliver stark forecasts for Steve’s outcomes. The Next Web did take the trouble to search for one of these doctors, and it turns out he’s not an oncologist at all; he’s a pulmonologist, which means he specializes in breathing, not in diagnosing cancer patients from telephoto pictures — via redwolf.newsvine.com
