Oh, some doctors are egomaniacal fiends. Heaven forbid anyone challenge their authority. A friend of mine used to work in a med school library, and the patrons (docs all) would literally throw tantrums if they couldn't get what they wanted. He once found one literally banging his head against a wall.

Anyway, hope all proceeds well with Mr. B. and other physicians. Best wishes!
