The term “PROVIDER” is very derogatory and insulting. Do you know the history of this term? See the IMAJ (Israeli Medical Association Journal).

2. “Only a few months after the Nazi seizure of power on 30 January 1933, the German Society of Pediatrics asked their members of Jewish descent either to resign voluntarily, or be stricken from the memb bership list. “
3. “The Society rapidly embraced Nazi racial policy and by 1934 the remaining Society members were already gleefully holding their first fully Aryan National Pediatric meeting.”
4. “In the the 1937 issue of the Reichs Medizinal Kalender, a directory of doctors, the remaining Jewish doctors in Germany were stigb matized by a colon placed before their names”
5. “Their medical licenses were finally revoked in 1938. They could no longer call themselves ‘Arzt’ or ‘doctor’. They were degraded to the term ‘Behandler’ or, freely translated, ‘provider’ “.
6. “The Jewish doctors had lost their government approbation. They could no longer hang out their shingle and even their prescription pads had to reflect the new law restricting their patients to other Jews”
7. So I think it’s time to stop using this term “provider”. I’m sure many don’t realize the historic significance but now you can read more about it.
