Dr. Drew Defends His Habit Of Diagnosing Stars He Doesn’t Treat

Photobucket

In a new interview, Dr. Drew discusses why he publicly comments on celebrities he doesn't treat, saying, "It's bizarre to me that you can have political commentators, sports commentators, weather commentators, but with medicine, people go, 'You can't do that.' It's like, if you show me a picture of a rash, I don't have to know the person to tell you what that rash is. There are lots of medical conditions that you can diagnose never having met the person.

Soon enough, we'll have telemedicine and do it through the Internet — that's the future. You can educate people about politics, criminality, the law, but not about medicine? It's just silly ... I really don't want to hurt anybody, but to say the truth and to offer words that might be helpful in understanding what some of these conditions are. I can't see any reason not to do that. That's changing things for the better."
