    Do you like Dr. Phil?

    I do. I think that he has great common sense on life and people. I plan to speak on a lot of subjects that come up on the show. So, I'd like to find out some statistics on who like and who does not like him. Share your thoughts. : )

    I like Dr. Phil but sometimes his shows end feeling like he never closed on the subject.  But, I do agree I think he makes a lot of sense.

      I also feels he makes sense. He has this common sense approach but, there is no great ending to each show. But, it's psychology. It takes a lot time with the individuals to change behaviors. Also, how much can they fit in 30 minutes?

    Not as a therapist or "expert" on human behavior. I feel he deliberately misrepresented himself as a physician and that he is more interested in profiting off pop psychology and controversy than helping people. With this said, I do think he is a good actor with a genuine bent for tongue-in-cheek humor. I think he missed his true calling.

      He really has more degrees than you may actually realize. He is a good actor. It takes some talent though to have a TV show. Controversy is what motivates the public to have an opinion, as did this question. Keep coming back!

    No, not really.  He's actually not a "doctor" that has an MD, but rather a clinical psychologist, and not a physician.  He has a PhD.

      I believe he's a Dr. Everyone has their medium or niche. I don't know if I'd want a vague M.D. So, I have to disagree. But, that why I asked. Thanks for your input.
