I have heard a nutritionist lament that her employer did not have such facilities on-site or in-plan and inform me that if I wished to spend $250 out-of-pocket she could make inquiries. This would not, of course, have any impact on the "I see that you're fat. Do you feel properly ashamed?" dialogue that opens all health discussions.

I went to the Bastyr clinic once with foot pain when running. The student, an earnest young lady, took down a bunch of notes about exercise and diet. Her supervisor, an instructor, walked in a half hour later, glanced at my chart and said "Huh. You're about 50lbs overweight. Try diet and exercise" and walked out without so much as looking me in the eye. The next time I came in I brought the pedal I had broken off the exercise bike at the health club (RIP Mieko's you cheap piece of shit) to ask if she had any other suggestions.

She refused to see me and insisted I transfer care. Bummer for the student.
