When I first saw the title, what I thought of was something I sometimes see is shows about Ye Olden Days
(1930's and earlier) where there is always some country boy or old person that doesn't trust them city doctors with all their book learnin and such and would rather stick to old fashion home remedies. Of maybe someone he had lost a relative who was being cared for by a doctor and thinks they are all quacks.
I run across it a lot in shows like the radio version of Gunsmoke
but danged if I can remember any examples specific enough to describe in detail on a trope page.
I think we should consider merging the concepts and make a general trope about characters that refuse, for whatever reason, to seek out professional medical treatment. We can split it up latter if the resulting trope thrives and collects a ton of examples,
