Why do doctors treat patients as idiots ?

A patient sent me this email.

 My doctor did an ultrasound scan for me and because my uterus is retroverted and retroflexed , he has advised me to do a hysteroscopic metroplasty.

I get angry when I see how some doctors take patients for a ride, simple because their patients trust them. A retroverted and retroflexed uterus is completely normal, and does not affect a woman's fertility. In fact, doing unnecessary surgery is likely to cause much more harm and reduce her fertility, because of the scarring which it can cause.

Patients cannot afford to blindly trust all doctors. They need to verify that the information which their doctor gives them is reliable !
