I think I'd prefer that too. A robot doctor wouldn't be judgemental. If I go in there and I haven't lost weight and I've made little effort to improving my health the robo doc or holographic projection (like on Star Trek: Voyager) wouldn't be judgemental.

It won't matter anyway. The business model nowadays is "The Patient always needs drugs". No matter what your weight is it "should be " 10 pounds less. No matter how you're exercising you "should get more exercise". Your cholesterol should be lower than whatever it is. And everybody needs whatever expensive "Screening" procedure they're pimping today. Had one recently... hey we can schedule you for your next one.

Like the sign on the Springfield dentist's office. No matter how you're brushing, you're doing it wrong
