Ida Davidson is the first to admit her weight goes up and down, but the Shrewsbury resident said she was stunned when a new primary care physician said she could not become a patient because she weighed more than 200 pounds.
"I can't believe and I did say that out loud, 'I can't believe you guys just said that to me.' I have never heard anything so ridiculous in my life," Davidson said.
Davidson said she is a "little overweight." The incident on Wednesday occurred during a second visit to Dr. Helen M. Carter at the doctor's Worcester office.
