My pediatrician is also a homeopath practitioner and sometimes she prescribes some diluted sugar recipe which we immediately throw to the nearest garbage can. It goes to show how deluded a modern practitioner can be, since she is otherwise a good pediatrician.
I think you're being too charitable by using the word "deluded". I would lean more towards "fraudulent" or, at best, "incompetent". I also couldn't imagine trusting such a person to provide medical care to a child.
If she's not blatently prescribing fake cures for financial benefit then it must mean she is incapabable of distinguising between the effectiveness of antibiotics vs. distilled placebo water. In that case she might as well be picking treatements randomly out of a hat.
