Unfortunately, this is the norm for doctors nowadays.  But it is not with the 
orderly at the hospital, but with the probably less trained and experienced 
"medical evaluation technician" (compared to the orderly) at the Denialcare 
HMO who is provided only with a rubber stamp that says, "Proposed treatment 
is not approved without additional information."  After the doctor provides 
"additional information," and after debating the treatment thru many phone 
calls with the "technician," he/she *may* be transferred to a physician who 
understands the medical problem.
