I work in the medical field and so does my whole family, let me tell you it's a mistake to imply that you should accept the advice of your doctor without question.
Ask several different doctors their opinion on a given situation, you may get several different answers. Some answers might be based on new research, some might be based on very old research, some might be common practice not supported by research, some might be common practice contraindicated by research, some might be based on the doctors past experience, some might be influenced by your doctors personal beliefs, others might be supported by a drug company who schmoozed your doctor into pushing their product.
Doctors are just as prone to making mistakes as any other person in any other profession, there is no reason to accept everything they say without doing your own research and evaluation and asking for the opinions of other doctors.

t makes me really nuts when people suggest that you should accept all of the advice of doctors just because they went to school. Google "medical errors" and your skin may crawl. Work in a hospital and see what an imprecise practice it can be at times.
That being said, they went to school for a long time, so why not go and see what they have to say, even if your not going to just mindlessly accept it for truth all the time.
