PhDs aren't generally referred to as doctors, although that is part of their title. When people say doctor, especially in the context of this thread, it's understood, I think, that we're referring to a physician.
My apologies. I spent 5 years addressing PhD's as doctors.
But then as far as the medical field goes: there are some nurses with PhDs.
In general, no I wouldn't take medical advice from a PhD or a doctor on network TV.
I would also not take medical advice from any doctor that guarantees his diet will work for everyone regardless of the degree.
I would be more inclined to take the advice of someone who said quitting smoking did wonders for my health.
