A question of etiquette

What do you do when a healthcare professional you see regularly and trust, starts peddling multi level marketed vitamins to you in the middle of a consultation?

oooooh. Do you mean really peddling, like showing you a bottle and suggesting you buy it? Because if so - that is extremely unprofessional, and possibly illegal. It may be worth discussing with someone from the medical board in your state.

Politely decline - one of my past doctors has done that and I felt really pressured but then realized I shouldn't have to deal with that so I politely declined

If your doctor's really cool, firmly say no and make it clear you don't appreciate the solicitation.

If the doc sucks, drop him, stat. Nothing worse than a medical "professional" trying to score extra cash on the side.
