Here's what I mean... IF a doctor were to have something (lets say HIV) should I as the patient have access to that information? Directly, there is little risk, but wound care, needles, surgeries... All kinds of things could cause me or my loved one to be put at risk... So should that information be public?
Realizing that a doctor always takes precautions is one thing, but accidents happen... So what do you think? Would you want to be operated on by doctor with HIV, or any other transmittable illness? How much should they have to disclose for the sake of the safety of their patients?

If we make this exception for Doctors then it will trickle down and your medical history will eventually become public knowledge as well. The rule has to be for all or none... to be far to all!!
