Sakharov Bars Visit to Doctors

Soviet dissident scientist Andrei D. Sakharov has refused to visit doctors in recent weeks, claiming they are not to be trusted because they allowed his medical examination to be filmed, his family said today.

In his monthly telephone call with relatives living in this Boston suburb, Sakharov also said from the Soviet city of Gorky that he has sent proposals on nuclear power plant safety to the Soviet Academy of Sciences and to Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev, but has received no acknowledgment.

The proposal “discusses matters of such importance as the safety of nuclear power stations and the important proposals on the fusion research,” said Efrem Yankelevich, who is married to Bonner’s daughter.
